    I liked your idea about adding the plymouth ribbed bumpers, dummy spotlights and curb feelers. Really going to set this one over the top Rob. I was stoked when you said you were going to paint music notes coming off the Script name "Donna" on the trunk. Should be just like the 50s dude! Haha

There isnt that many shoebox roofs that flow right but this one does.Great choice in tailights,it just fits the car perfect man.I cant wait till we go sledin with our 50's.Stunning work here,you better be proud of your car.So nice to see you left the bags at the grocery store and went for the period style...... I love it.

    Hey Rob, can I borrow your bags? Since there's a big uproar on recycling and stuff, and there not for grocery shoping either (hahahaha!!!). As what everybody else said, it looks DyNOmite!!!!! awesome workmanship.....

    looks good rob, i remember you saying you were gong to tear into the top awhile back. opening up the front window helps alot on a shoebox, did that too, to one here at the shop, helps alot with the brow efect, cars looking killer, keep it up!!
     
  21. Great looking chop, the taillights look cool, ,,Sam
