    Looks good Scott, I like the pillars leaning forward. Based on your other work, this is gonna be a killer ride when your done.

    let's see we have about 45 days to Mass, you better get going. LoL

    Here are the latest pics of the chop. I have been working on the window openings and Josh started shaping the sail panels.

    Ok here is the latest the chop is getting close to done. Last week end I shaved the gas door and this weekend I welded in the pieces we hammer formed for the back of the quarter glass opening. I hope by next weekend I should have it close enough to feel good about starting on the chassis.

  12. Scott....the chop turned out perfect, just as expected. Those sail panels are SEXY!!

    I've got something to drop by the shop for that little project...looking forward to seeing the car in person.

    Later, Bryan

    What the hell - how did I miss this?
    I was even at your shop and failed to notice??
    I swear, I must be getting Alzheimers

    I'll pretend I was just caught up in the 36 project
    Top is looking groovy and it is great you are building something for yourself
    Josh's metal shaping skills are blowing my mind, damn

    well I decideded to take a little brake from sheet metal work and start on the chassis last week end. We got the front clip in all air baged and got the c-notch in. It was a long weekend but I feel good about the progress. I had not looked at the chop at ride height untill this weekend. It look so much better...Duh.. But this week end I will be starting on the four bar and may be have a roller.

    Ok here is the latest on Sunday I brought in a couple pros to help me get a little farther along. So Dave Hitch and Alex Gambino came over and we nocked out a ton of stuff on my list. The chassis was a roller on Saterday and by Sunday night it was all plummed and mounted to my body plus a ton of outher little shit. But the kicked ass and handled a ton of shit. So thanks guys.
