Here are more pics. We are finally happy with the shape of the driver's side sail panel.
Flawless work, keep it up.
Thanks for taking time to post this up, really learning a lot on this thread!
Great work, looks really awesome!!
That's nice of you to say. Thank you! We appreciate that! We are always striving to improve. As soon as we stop we might as well throw in the towel. We have to keep improving....otherwise what's the point.
Thanks! Not quite flawless but that's the goal!
Thanks, glad you like it!
Thanks a lot!

If I didn't know better, I'd say you've done this before. It looks great, thanks for sharing.

That smells good.
Once or twice. Thank you!
Here are a few more pics:
It turns out that the rockers are shot so Clark is fabricating new rocker panels & floors, and getting the frame 100% before we metal finish the chop. Our buddy Andy is helping out with the frame since we are trying to meet a crazy deadline and cutting corners isn't an option for us. I'm doing the trunk delete panel & filling the tail light area to put a different tail light in. So we will see if we can pull it off. At the end of the day the most important thing is that it is all done right! But damn it would be cool to have Brian cruise his car up to Santa maria!
Looks like a bad case of the Rot Ro's in the rockers, but as nice of a job as you're doing on the rest I know you'll take care of that too.
HaHa! You got that right! Thanks.
Here are pics of the fabricated rocker panels. Some of the pics aren't so hot. It's hard to see what's going on with all the bracing. There's no kill like over kill!
You, sir, are an artist!
Congratulation, your are really a wonderfull well-matched couple.
I'm a chick, but Clark is an artist. He would disagree ...about being an artist.....not me being a chick!
Here are more pics of the rotted out rocker & crappy repairs that were made in the past:
Did "The Artist" weld wedding ring too?
Thanks again to share with us your great work, nice pics and it's allways a pleasure to read daily news from the "Dynamic duo" Clark "The Artist", and Tracy "The Chick"
flawless work...very inspirational ! thanks a lot for posting
Here are some progress pics: The metal work is not 100% yet but it's getting closer.
WOW! That Top looks great, hard to believe the rockers were so bad on a West Coast car. Bob
They were bad!
Here are some more progress pics. Some are out of order but you get the idea. We just have a few more things to do then it will drive to the Ventura Nationals next week.

Outstanding Metal Work!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Yeah, the shadow line in those last 2 pictures really shows how smooth that roof and sail are. Impressive.
Amazing workmanship! Time to wipe the drool off my keyboard.
Did you do your chassis yourself if so could you give some details
