    Man that is looking great. I'm glad to see the progress you're making. It shouldn't take too much more for you to finish it up, right? Right? I just need to know so I know when to bring out my '51 so I can talk you into chopping my top. Just kidding but, I love the proportions you've achieved on you chop.

    Some pics from billetproof. I took home the Beatnik Pick award. For me it might as well have been the ridler!

    that top is crazy. my camera didn't know what to do when I took a couple shots at Billetproof. does it have a fade to it or is that an optical dilusion?

    Thanks man! It is HOK Planet Green base. We then mixed some black into it for the fade. Then we added some silver to it for the lighter fade. Then the whole thing got 6 coats of PPG Moss Candy. I still get wood everytime I turn on the garage lights!

    Thanks man, I love the way yours was looking too! We are thinking we might try to get to the Suede Palace if I can get the interior and side glass done by then.
    Thanks for the vote on no skirts, I dig it that way too

    I have been debating since we did the roof. A Cream on the bottom was a second choice, but I think we are going to go ahead and paint the rest of the car the same color/fade. It's just so sexy in the sun, I want more of it!
     
  17. what a great color!!!

    I modified four-door Pontiac trim to work with mine. It allows me to use stock door trim. BadLuck has the BadAss 2-door trim, and I believe you need the doors, shark fins and rear trim to make it all work right

    well for my hardtop.. I just bought the door trim and the "Fin" piece from a 2 door Pontiac.. the front windshield beltline doesnt change.. the rear i just had to shorten because my roof moved forward when we chopped it. So it wasnt a difficult installation.. difficult part is finding them in good shape!

    Thanks, guys. My Fleet is a four door, so I may give it a shot, and let you know how it goes.

    Car looks great, gives em an idea what I'm in for if I ever get started on my Pontiac's body. I've been spending too much doing drivetrain and suspension changes. Enjoy putting the miles on it.

    Really like the fact that you're gonna paint it all green.
    The right choice in my opinion, cause thats the color my car gonna be also
    Can't wait for the finished paint photo's!!
