    Car is looking good!!! One of my favorite ford body styles. If I couldnt have found my 54 chevy, I would have tried to pick one of these up. They make veeeeery sweet kustoms, and yours is headed in the right direction. I had seen a pic of agreen one with white interior in magazine some where and was perfect, but could never find it again. Keep up the good work and enjoy it, and drive the wheels off it.

    just an idea......could the Ply door trims be swapped left/right (?) then the rear "spear" would be facing down and sorta match the front line of the rear fender bulge.
    (assuming the width pattern is symmetrical top/bottom)

    This car turned out fantastic! Every bit of it up to the green! Usually I hate all black primer cars because it is so over done but it was workin on this car. Sorry just not feelin the green. But hell it's your car not mine.:D Have fun with it and drive the wheels off of it you sure have earned it.
