    Okay guys, here is the result from past three months. SAR rear body panels and about 4" chop with laid back windshield done by Kari Saarela in Finland.

    I love it! Looks like you had a really nice starting point, it turned out great. The chop has a very pleasing shape as well.

    I did a similar conversion on a '33 and I have a '34 to do next, I am interested in how much work it took to reuse the sedan rear fenders, as I have sedan fenders as well. Any more pictures of the rear fenders? Is it just a matter of adding a filler strip to make them wider at the top?

    The fenders are the old ones with just fillers strips at inner edge. You see that in the picture taken beside the red fence .

    Looks great! The quarter window is the back window chopped up? If so, that is fantastic!

    I literally just finished reading the post about four door cars being neato now. Naw, I enjoyed watching you transform one from boring to cool much more.

  20. Just sitting there it doesn't convey the amount of labor to do that conversion. Well done!
