    Bare metal for awhile, I'm leaning more towards a two tone grey but still undecided! Thanks for all the kind words fellas!

    I like that top, the style fits in perfectly with the rest of the car. Nice. Any more pics of how you made it ? Are those snaps holding it in place ?
    Looks great

    This build has me super envious! Your style is awesome! The ideas you have are what I am "trying" to make happen. Great vision and just a slick ass hot rod! Way to go brother!

    The workmanship is just amazing. This doesn't inspire me, it makes me want to gather all of my tools together and light a match. Man, I wish I could learn some of your techniques, like the top two pics in post 218.

    Ended up building a new chassis, wanted a shorter wheel base and a wider front end!

    Beautiful touch! Cap is a work of art. Goes so well with the build.
    I wish when I built my headers that I would shortened them a bit more so there wouldn’t be contact with the door opening. I can open the door just past perpendicular but had to use limiting straps to avoid contact. Your length is very nice.
