    well, my "mild kustom" shoebox took yet another step in the direction of radical kustom,,,
    i just cant control myself,,,,,,hahah,,,,,after i added the fins, it NEEDED a chop,,,,after the chop, it NEEDED a section,,,,,,after the section,,,,,,,,,,well,,,,we'll see what happens,,,
    got the section all laid out,,,nothing crazy,,just 2",,,,,,which will just about give me the "magic formula" of 1/3 roof, 2/3 body,,,,,,,,,

    also decided my merc grille shell needed some narrowing, so i narrowewd it by 9 inches,,needs filler pieces to tie it in with the fenders,,but i like it a lot better,,,,,

    i start the surgery tomorrow and will post more pics as i go along.......tempted to start on her tonight,,,but i figured i'd get a good night sleep (yeah, right),,and go at her bright and early tomorrow......

    Hi Jim!
    i have to tell you i didnt like the fins in the beginning, but this is getting better and better! it takes some big balls to cut a car up like that..
    by the way, do you take a 41 caddy in trade for the merc!!LOL
