No chop, glass is perfect, doors open and close like new, handles with like new, all seals are still soft and interior is all complete so I dont want to start over with all of that and a chop. - If I ever sell the car and the next guy wants to go that route, its all there for them to go at it. Might shave the doors but undecided, tails are getting changed. Picked up a set of dummy spots today. Might run them, might not. Also picked up a set of 59 lancer caps to try out. Looking for WWW now. Intentions were to paint it but season is over for paint ability, its cold out here! Skirts would complete the look but they have to be 1951 skirts, no bubble/cruiser skirts. So many options and so many decisions, there is a budget and during this build I pretty much killed it to get the car done to the point you now see it at so I could drive it this year and it might hold alot of this up.
