    Thanks for the feedback. I've been kinda sweating it. All this started cause I went to French the headlights and found filler. So I started at left front and started to the back.

    I'll stick this in the front
    Not sure about chop would definately be nice but in my opinion you can go either way with a coupe. See what happens.

    Hey Cliffordean,
    I think you got the back end looking good! Can't wait to see that Caddy grill in the other end. Kustoms Rule!!

    Fits up and glides better than I would have imagined. With the Ford tail graduating down and the Olds being a straight box, I'm impressed with the fit.

    Chop might be a challenge with the short roof line and extending the tail lights. Will be tricky to keep the trunk from looking like a pick up bed. But I can see how you've made everything else come out right and am looking forward to future updates.

    Looking good!

    Looks great. I wouldn't chop it if I was you, coupes look fine the way they came.

    Keep us updated

    Ideas like this are what keeps kustom cars alive. Very nice and clean. Great work!
     
  26. Agreed please don't chop it... That grill might be tough to pull off

    Right now a chop is last thing on agenda if at all. There are a lot of nice coupe chops out there, but being a coupe it can go either way. I'm looking forward to the grille it shouldn't be as nerve wracking as the quarters. You can really mess the flow of a car up if proportions aren't right. I appreciate all the positive feed back.
