  4. Cutting is the easy part, putting it back together is the not-so-easy part. How you makin' out?

  21. I was just looking back at some old build threads and thought I'd check in on this one.

    Judging by your avatar you've made some progress. Your last few photos are red Xs. Got any updates?

    'B' pillars are excellent, establish new shape of profile. Also make 'roof' appear shorter, not 'squashed' like most chopped Tudors.
    Grille cavity looks a little narrow, with frontal appearance now appearing 'wider' with chop...Really like the '54 center grille, though wish it were about 3" more on each end...
