    Killer work- can't wait to see it done. What are your plans for the grille? Stock horizontal bar, '53 teeth, or something different?
     
  10. thank you, i believe its a 54 buick grill? I just have to find the upper stash to mold it in right.

    With the hood off, you can really see the line from the front of the fenders to the rear quarter. I wonder how it would look if the hood followed the contour of the fenders?

    its funny how everyone is now flipping these rear windows.

    the car looks good. im glad you didnt take more than 4 inches out of the front. what are your plans for the tail lights?

    keep busting ass on it.
     
  17. yea eric did that well over a year ago hes from the calaveras car club his work is incredible, and actually i havent seen anyone else flip this window yet like he did but thats kool!!!! and the tail lights may come off the bumper guards or maybe stand alones off the rear splash pan. not sure yet but thank you also yea you take more then 4 out the front and its almost tooo small this has a classy look to it and i can add a visor still if i want.

    thanks again!!

    Chop looks nice.
    One question though is it looks like the rear skirts are welded in, how do you plan on changing a rear flat? I had a lowered 52 with skirts (removable ;) ) and I had a bitch of a time getting the tire out...

    It's not my business to answer this question but IMO, it's rad!! I have skirts on mine and it's a bitch to change the wheels anyways, i might as well weld them shut!!:)

    The chevy looks great man!! I also flipped the window on mine and it flows better IMO. Keep it up man!!
