    but yours will be a hell of alot nicer than mine!! i havent had the time to get the low hemi coupe going yet.

    i havent even had the time to work on this sectioning job either, but will get back to it.

    I have a freind that is in the hospital and isnt doing good so were trying to get his street rod going for him before the worst can happen. if anyone wants to help we could use it, were working on it on sundays all day.

    heres another small update, me being so board and having nothing else to do i decided to work on the front fender and see how it goes,
    went fine, took about an hour, seem like the door gap is good, i have the get the other door finished up, then the other fender in place then fit the hood and make sure its all where it needs to be.

    heres some pics, i also lowered it the "traditional way" for now till i can set it up how i really want to.

    After sitting unchanged for several years I aquired it and have since finished up the section job and fixed those problems mentioned in the earlier posts... Now its a matter of deciding how to finish it up? I could either continue towards being an early style custom or become a more 60's style custom... at this time tho it is actually for sale, before it takes that next step.. after so much work and interest in this project i thought it good to update the thread and include a recent picture, and will include more as it progresses... and hope any possible future owner will do that same.

    this is how the car currently looks:)

    and my concept for how it will look finished:)

  29. sectioned shoebox's are so cool! I'd say go the early style custom route, but thats just me.

    The concept drawing looks very cool. It displays many elements incorporated in Ron Courtney's X-51, which was built circa 1958, should you decide to go in an earlier style built. (I'm sure you're well aware.) Admittedly, the car was ahead of its time.
