    With the exception of the front bumper and splash pan that need to be repositioned aft about a yard, this should be and could be the poster child for Kustom car.

    Absolutely incredible workmanship. A tip of the hat is in order.
     
  11. Ultra nice lines and great craftsmanship...You indicated that if ever decided to paint the car your preference would be gold so I thought I'd give a rough idea of how that would look.

  12. I do not think there is one panel on the car you have not modified in some way! Looks really nice, and very impressed with all the handmade parts for the windows and rest of the body.

    Just curious what engine and trans are you using or plan to use?

    It is more than obvious you are gifted with much patience, fortitude, and with a display of advanced metal work. I'm hoping you built this for yourself and your family.

  14. Many thanks for this photoshop, yes that gives an idea :D

    Yes all panels, was modified I think :D
    I will put a SBC350 and Th700r4 on it.


    Yes a little, but for myself above all :D
    For my family, it's the pool that is under construction, each his own toys :D

    Love all that's been done. Excellent workmanship and design. But the photoshop of the gold doesn't fit the car IMHO. Maybe a deep maroon, or eggplant? Just my 3 cents worth.

  24. The color is not for now, I want to ride the car some years in epoxy primer before in case of reaction with the preparation or the bondo ;)

    MUCH better, but I understand your concern about not painting the car right away.

    I generally don't like customs but this one is an exceptional something else! Very nice. Lots of work but a very nice result.
