    Just keeps getting better, awesome work. What metal working tools are you using when you form your patches?

    I like it, maybe someone with a better eye will make a suggestion but to me it's good
     
  16. That's a nice subtle touch on the line change Flop.

    I like the sweep, a lot. It marries up nicely with the curve in the cowl. Gives the truck a more elegant look. And if you're Z-ing the frame in front, it could marry nicely with that too.

    Im still not sure exactly how i am going to do the frame, my roadster was z'ed in the back with a dropped axle in the front and I really liked how it sat, I want this one lowered but not real low. I will prob give it some rake with the tire choice also

    I normally cry when I see someone channel a car because they usually hack it all up. But not this time. The job you did is exactly how it should be done. Good job. With fenders on it, it is going to really stand out.

    thanks daveo!

    cant wait jim!!

    thanks Mr Radcliffe!

    appreciate that lowpunk!!

    thanks corn fed ! i always cringe when i hear channel as well! Mainly because it is a ton of work that most people generally skip and make up with loads of square tube and b/s welds to the body !


    and the back of the cab is pretty much ready to go !
