    Off to a friends house . He's going to help me put in the patch panels. I was going to give it a shot but was talked out of it. I'll pratice on something else first.

    Definitely savable in today's world. I can remember the time when one in this shape might have gotten scrapped. The use of correct patch panels and complete bodies have set a new standard as to what is saveable and what is not.

  9. Nice car, nice chop. Mind if I follow along?

    I like the big chop, like before the deuce was so sacred. Today, everybody is afraid to chop one like that, it's all about resale value now. The 2" chop is what the elites go for. Great start on a bass ass car, it looks to be in really nice shape. Get the rear wheels up to the fender line, like anybody cares what I think, but with a top nice and low, the rest of the car should follow, IMO, then the whole car looks mean. Anyway, great going. Put something fat in the engine bay to fill it up like Hemi rocker covers. A SBC gets lost in there, the hole is too big. Why am I telling you how to build your car? Just ignore this post. Great start.
