  1. Looks good! I’m considering chopping my sport coupe, what company did you go through for your wood kit?

    I bought the belt rail and b-pillar wood from fordwood.com if I remember correctly. I bought two of the top bows at a swap meet, and some misc. pieces from some fordbarners. I chopped mine 4", looks proportionate.

    Ha ha , your addicted , its a slippery slippery slope...... Starts with one car and then a second, and before you know it ........:eek: I was 13 when it all started for me in 1968 with a 28 rpu/flathead . Now the sheds and the yard and even some rooms in the house are full of it . My Dad's near new car at the time , is older now than the RPU was at the time, difference is I have no idea where his Falcon is but I do know exactly where the RPU is . :D
