    Looks sick as hell man! Laying the pillars back always gives a sinister, all business look! Great work brother.

    Amazing work. Looks good except for the rear window. Maybe you can fill it in a get rid of it all together. Thats what I would do... Just an opinion.

    looks fucking bitchen. love the fact that the roof is now stretched and the a pillars leaned. i had a glass guy tell me to not lean the pillars, it messes with the shape of the glass. never thought of doing it this way. you learn something new everyday.

    Very cool looking chop! Laying the "A" pillars back makes for a whole different and sinister look.
    Keep us posted on your progress.
    Cheers!

  15. I saw pictures of it on my brother in-laws cell phone. Looked pretty good.
    Cant wait to see it in person some day.
    You should paint it Tella Tubby purple.

    So can you see out of it, is it safe to drive?
     
  25. I can see out of it great, ...the seating position is critical....your site line has to be perfect...correct seat ect.... and having all 3 mirrors with the pass side being a convex ....Ive put on quite a few miles on Cali freeways and lots locally...no problems ........stops steers and goes straight and fast!
