    The left side is chopped more than the right side. Other then that, not bad.

    I love those old Fury's. The chop looks sharp. I'll be interested to see how it progresses.

    The new roofline is stunning, but I'm really curious as to how you're going to do the glass, especially the windshield, which can't really be cut or leaned without messing up the angle of the "bulge" at the top of the glass. Looking forward to more pics.

    belt sanding the botom of the glass and leaning it back and belt sanding the top off
     
  16. OK never been a Mopar guy at all.......but that looks great! I have always loved those tailights though. I hopr the car was a good one to start with cause it looks like a keeper and one yo wont see anywhere else

    The chop looks great! Those exhaust pipes on the other hand...
     
  20. I wonder if the cluster will interfere with the glass when it's leaned back?

    Well, if it does, the whole dash unbolts and any full size 60-64 Mopar dash will bolt right in if you can't get it to clear up.

    On the bright side, the new profile of the car looks great. I never would have thought you could chop one of these with that big back window.

    Growing up I thought that era of Mopars were the ugliest things ever made. Now when I see one at a show they're the 1st one's I ck out. Love the chop & the car.

    You've got to be pleased with the way this one turned out. All the planning and work really paid off. The lines flow like nobody's business, and it looks great from every angle.
