    The scoop does look funny without the fenders to balance it out on each side.
    This is scoop #3......................Ray

    I'd like the scoop better if it was flat on top, and about half as high. Great project though, and super metal skills!

    It's not scrap until you throw it away.

    Nice to see the picture of the whole car. It gives the rest of us a visual of you have in your mind.

    Looks like pre '65 coach building, to me.

    Ray, Car is looking very good. You have a very good eye for the lines of the car. Keep on going ! Getting close to the finish.

    I decided that I need more practice and not beat my self to death on each panel. I will just keep throwing panels at it till a good set come out and I like the design. Things change and it gives me more time to work out the under structure. More scrap!

    I really like that second pic. Sort of a mid-60s Ferrari flair

    Hmmm, I guess there is a "Grandfather Clause" not mentioned in the new enforcement concerning the re-body of a 1974 late model car. I now feel sorry for the member who's thread was deleted over a late model front clip. Also, it was mentioned '32 Ford f'glass body build threads would be deleted. Really confused???

    WTF is the deal with this "New HAMB" horseshit I keep hearing about?

    I see two new forums that have super tight rules, but I didn't see anything announced about new rules for the general forum.

    Got a link to the new rules?

    I'm confused too..........a 50' Merc is NOT ok because it has a Camaro clip that can't probably even be seen, but a rebodied 74 Vette is ok ??? So maybe fiberglass 32's WILL be ok after all ! :rolleyes:

    I am very, very confused. :confused:

    My bad... Was on my phone and looking at the wrong thread.

    This thread should be on Dogfightmag.com. Cool car though!
