    Really like the stance and the hoods over the tail lights look killer. Its fun to come up with different ideas, but sometimes its hard to get them to flow, looks like ya did a good job so far

    I really like the direction you are going with the car...Glad to see you getting right on that 2 link, If I had won, Id probably still be sitting on it!
    If you go with the '55 Pontiac side trim, try to get the Chieftan side spears, they work as-is, the Starchiefs are too long and will have to be shortened. I ended up combining 2 door pieces per door so the horizontal spears would sit lower on the side of the car, instead of running right into the stock windsplits, ya just gotta mess with it to get it where you want. The trim fits the contour of the Shoebox nicely.
    Nice work!
