  7. Great work, looks really awesome!!
     
  8. 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.

    Thanks!
    Once or twice;). Thank you!
    Thanks!
    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.
     
  14. 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!

  17. I'm a chick, but Clark is an artist. He would disagree ...about being an artist.....not me being a chick! ;)

    Yeah, the shadow line in those last 2 pictures really shows how smooth that roof and sail are. Impressive.
