    That windshield looks awfully tall though. Maybe you are just gettin older, or you're not a real man anymore..
    Cheers,

    Limey.....hahaha.....it's cut 2 inches and laid back a bunch. Back of the top is chopped 6 inches.....or at least the pivot is moved down 6. Pretty much gonna have to sit on the floor

    It was good seeing you in detroit.....we gotta make some plans for next year

    What did you use to measure 2" for the chop? There's nothing in my shop that goes that small, when marking out a chop.

    Well I'm back on my car. Here's a current shot. I remade the splash pans below the hood. Both are now pretty much done. Decided to go with 35 hoodsides. One is done now. The deck lid is also fitted. Not too long till I tear it apart for paint. 20170121_154729.jpg

    One of the most important thing I've done is getting the wheels just about done. The wheel with the tire is a 16 inch. The primered wheels are 17 inch.

    A lot got done today....last thing I was working on is hood latch placement. My OCD tells me to evenly space them on the hood......but visually I think they look best lined up with the louvers
