Nice sheet metal work on the floor
Looks good. And now you will have piece of mind knowing the driveline is clear.
I read this from start to finish! Truly inspiring work you are doing, you must have the patience of a hundred men and the equal skill of them as well Keep it up!
A suggestion from me would be to stick with the height on the shoebox you have now, looks killer! But that is just my opinion. I have a thing for customs that is not slammed to the ground like a flat out tire. Anyway you do I'll bet it will look super.
u suk i hate u! WANNA DO MINE ?
for real... nice craftsmanship. you should be proud of that. i will soon be starting my rot box shoebox too thanks for posting
This is a great thread. I like the work you are doing on your shoebox. The chop looks great, and I like the way you mounted the mustang tank. I look forward to seeing further updates on your work. Subscribed.
Great thread. I was wearing myself out going back and forth comparing so I did a quick side by side to see.
Rodster's gonna think I'm stalking since I was just asking about truck beds but this stuff's just so dang informative.
Lovin this thread!!!! Good to see another chop not over done!!!
Yea the chop is spot on looks good
Nice! I have a 50' I'm working on now.
totally killer work. i just recently picked up a 50 and see a lot of good things here.
what size tire are you running?
You cant get faster and cheaper than 30 minutes to make a set for free
It would take more than 30 minutes to get to Horrible Freight and back
Well, summer's over. Time to get back to work.
The tank is mounted.
I'm waiting on some other parts, so I decided to tackle the window trim and chopping the vent wings.
A jigsaw puzzle.
Welding the trim was nerve racking.
It's just too easy to blow thru this stuff.
I had to drink a couple beers just to get my hands steady.
That thing looks sweet. Makes me wish mine was chopped.
Great job on the trim work !!
How did I never see this.
More nice work !
nice work, those tudors sure make nice customs!
Still chopping stainless, modifying the glass runs, making glass templates.....
A moderate chop doesn't look so moderate when you compare it to the stock trim.
Are you going to tig weld the trims?
Looks super fresh man!
Yes, I tig welded, filed, sanded, and lightly buffed.
They look pretty good now, but will stuff buff some more.
Lookin good Rich.
My plan was also tig weld them,but i am not sure does my welder work with low amps.I guess 15 or something is fine with them?
Looking good! That trim does remind one of how ugly these cars were stock...
