    Thanks for the support! I do plan to lean the A pillars back, and flow the roof over the doors more

    Some great work so far, looking forward to seeing that chop once you finish it. I believe I seen your dads car last year leaving Boonesborough. That's a good looking coupe.

    Did a little fitting in rear corners, and mocked up the front half, to get an idea of where I want to go...[​IMG]

    Cut a quick door template, and flung some tape on to kind of visualize the lines

    I can't seem to get it any better than this at the moment... tired of pecking and slapping

    Time to move on
