Cool pics Becky,what did you take out of it in the end...4"?
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 to see a strong built frame and brackets.... nice work.
Loving this build!
looks good thanks for the post
Looking good Thanks for sharing .The flare die made the frame holes look great. You all spell tires alittle different don't you.
nice work...motor mounts are classy
This picture is perfect. The tire is in just the right place!
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.
really enjoyed saturday, thankyou Kelv and Becky, just sorry I couln't stay for the whole weekend and see the roof finished. I'll be honest I'm more sorry I couldn't stop and just get wasted on cider with Jay!
Look forward to seeing the coupe rolling soon
It's looking great Good work
I love it
wow! can't wait to see more... you are a true artisan...
GREAT work Kelv, looking forward to seeing it out and about!
Couldn't agree more...I absolutely hate hate hate coupes with the tires higher than the decklid.
Awesome craftmanship, you guys are doing a wonderful job, can't wait to see this one finished.
Got to agree with the previous comments on the rear wheel placement,spot on!
Great job on the chop,looks the bizz.
When we did the chop last weekend I set up the camera to take a pic every minute and then put it all together in a time lapse video.
Great vid,great soundtrack.
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.
cut the bottom out of the old tank and found this
Grill shell mocked up
The dash looks bloody marvellous Kelvin as does the rest of your workmanship!
Taildraggin - Nothing a good fuel (petrol) filter couldn't fix! ... Thanks for updates.
Great work, have never understood how you have time to photograph the build when working on it.
Bit more progress
Shock and headlight mounts made
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.
Dash mocked up
Looking great, i especially like the dash
LOVE the dash... looks made to fit!
dash and mounts turned out sweet...........
