    The shadow over the trunk on the driver's side appears as if you had modified the back of the car to flow in one smooth plane. Think "torpedo back" or Chevy Fleetline.

    Ok! I understand you, now! thanks you for your explication ;-)

    Jim, the owner, wanted the more fluid roof line possible. For this reason, I don't moved forward the rear windows, I just inclined it.
     
  16. Cool top chop! Not everyday you see it done like this. I have had a similar thought on doing the same to my shoebox, so it was fun to see it done and in such a well done manner! My hat off to you sir.

    the end of the "metal job"

    instead of made a lot of cut and weld in the original 1/4 glass molding, I build a new one with the right new curve

    The winter comes! and the wet weather to! so, by by the bare metal, all the "naked steel" receive a primer

    [​IMG]

    I sprayed black paint on the door to have a better proportion view...

    before/after

    that's all today.

    Now I must adjust the stainless steel glass trims.

    The owner will finish the project alone.
