    Brent , I did the chop about two years ago. It was about 3 1/2" in front and about 4" and some change in back. The rear window is stock laid down a little. Everything is leaded with a skim coat over it.

    I like it. I think the late 40's Mopar's have a lot of potential to be kustom fodder. The business coupe has the huge rear end that lends itself to the custom side. I love what you did with the car. I'd like to see more of these as customs. They're are still plenty of them out there and at very reasonable prices. I'd like to see some body extend the sail panels further down towards the rear end of the car to see how that would flow.

    OldStyle, I'm gonna keep it this way for a while. I've got other projects going and the slightly "blotchy" finish on the sealer gives it the look I like for an old custom. I'm sure it will get pretty crappy over the summer of commuting the 60+ miles for work every day and weekend roadtrips, but this car was restyled to be driven.

    That is slick. The Navy yard gray doesn't look bad either.

    Love the stance! I am in the middle of reworking the suspension on my 47' Plymouth. What tires are you running?
