    Hey, Adam. It looks like I'm not the only one with no windshield wipers! I'm trying to come up with something creative rather than just cut the holes open again and install stock style. Mine is post # 290 in this thread. Have any ideas what you want to do with yours?

    Yeah, I am stoked on the color...and everything else. Luckily, my friend that I bought it from owns a custom paint shop and he works with a great pinstriper. I think it's the most "done" car I have ever gotten my hands on, just easy stuff left to do. I found and bought a grill today, and just have to put bumpers on it. I already have the back glass and just need to leave it at the glass shop for a few days for the quarter windows and windshield. I was going to drive it to work today but it was supposed to rain...but didn't.

    Russerts-I am not going to run wipers on it, just Rain-x and a prayer!

    There are some amazing cars on this thread, I am interested to see what else shows up on here...

    Concept picture is a little old but am working on a deal for a Cal Custom smooth grill now. Didn't get to the skirts this winter as planned. 40 Stude coupe followed me home one day and has occupied my time. Photo was taken a coupe of years ago at Bob's Gasoline Alley in Cuba, MO.

    Anyone have pictures or help in chopping the convertible top? Car was originally a Vicky, has a 49-50 top with poor window fitment so figure I can't make it much worse by chopping it and trying to get things lined up a little better.

    327/TH350, 8" RR, old school pacer sub frame, new Coker WW tires & 15" wheels (blew out a belt on the old tires last year).

    Paint is Chrysler Turbine Bronze.

    It's amazing how just a couple inches can make a HUGE difference the overall look of a vehicle. The chop on the ragtop looks perfect and the altitude is nice with the rear whitewall just peaking out. Can't wait to see the photochop become reality.

    I am working on this 50 shoebox hope the photo downloads. Masterson Kustoms did all the leading so I suppose this is a lead sled. It is in primer so far.
