    A little update on my 54. Getting closer but haven't had much time to work on it. Customer cars have been keeping me busy.

  6. Yeah, photo phucket has gone and messed up another thread.
    Best way I've found, is go steal back your pics, using your phone to screen shot them.

    That is pretty funny! I told a long time custom car guy I was thinking of using a 46 Ford coupe window and he told me it would never work and it would look like a Plymouth! To make a long story short I am not too far off the mark because that is perfect!
    I purchased a 1954 2 door Chevy like yours a while ago and it was chopped and the first thing I found was there was no lower section on the rear window. The whole car is a wreck and I have been told by more than one car guy to scrap it.. I also have a second frame that I am working on to get the drive line and suspension completed. The chop on your car appears to be more than the 6" that was done to mine. Is that an illusion? Mine will never look as nice as yours but I plan on making it as nice as I can.

    Yeah it's a big chop. It's a 7 1/2 front and 9 inch in back. Thank you! Good luck and if you have any questions feel free to hit me up.

    That is some beautiful work you are accomplishing . There are quite some radical cars out there , but not too many that are radical AND have beautiful proportions like yours. You definitly nailed it.

    Twisted Sister,
    Do you have any picture of how you did the scoops they look great. Thanking of maybe doing something along those line to my 52 because my rear quarts look like hamburger meat from some one trying to half ass repair them.

    Okay thanks. The first couple of pages the pictures don't come up. They are photo bucket and the H.A.M.B seems to not like photo bucket Seems like a lot of good threads have been robbed of its pictures from photo bucket. There must be a photo bucket conspiracy out there.

    One of the best parts of dealing with Twisted Sister is the fact he is willing to answer questions without trying to put anyone down! I asked for a couple shots of his cars side scoops, rear window area, and a couple side shots that I could print. The idea was to view all the detail and make the decisions on what could be accomplished to salvage my 54. Not a lot of people are so willing to help so it is really appreciated.
