    yea we ended up taking out 4" in the end, with it sat on 32 rails think it was the right decision. if your ever in the neighbourhood you should pop in.

    Nice build, The Hemi is just sitting perfect. The rear tire (or is that tyre ?) is lined up in the rear quarter just perfect. I am not to agreeable with the chop. To me there is just too many chopped "A"s. Car is looking good.

    Couldn't agree more...I absolutely hate hate hate coupes with the tires higher than the decklid.
     
  19. Awesome craftmanship, you guys are doing a wonderful job, can't wait to see this one finished.

  22. Bit more done on the coupe
    Fitted the 49 Plymouth Dash. I had to make up a new top part to graft it onto the old Dash to make it a bolt in item.
    Only had to cut about 4" off each side.

    The bottom of the trunk lid needs some rust repair so the skin was removed, not an easy job but its now apart and ready to shot blast.
    Not sure if I am going to repair the bottom 4" or make a new skin.
