It is time to start planning the most ambitious build I have ever been involved with. This phase of the project wont be starting for another 3 months so its time to start the planning. (I mean I gotta have SOMETHING to do all day at work LOL.) I want to build this: And am starting with this: As you can see from the photoshop work, the car has been both chopped and sectioned. What I think needs to be done is: 1. 3 body section. 2. 2 top chop. 3. Flattening out the bulge in the roof. 4. The installation of wider 2-door doors and moving the door piller back 4 . My feelings are that the stock wagon is a bit ungainly. Its bulbus. Top heavy. It doesnt floooooowwww. Its a bit like Carl Muldens nose .functional but not attractive. I have ALWAYS loved sedan deliveries and have owned two . A 50 Chevy and a 36 Chevy and loved them both. Any way I go it WILL ve a Sedan Delivery style when done. Ive been looking at the blue photoshop above for over 2 years now and I still love the proportions. The car currently has fresh floorboards and rocker panels. The entire structure is now sound. All rust has been removed and/or replaced. It will be sitting on a stock chassis running a y-block and stock suspension. I also have the chioice of doing a tailgate setup or using a Sedan Delivery rear door. I have all 4 four-door doors, a nice pair of two-door doors, a scrap pair of two-door doors, 2 hoods, and an extra roof from a 55 Ford wagon to use as parts/practice pieces. I taped the last episode of Monnster Garage where they chopped and sectioned a 54 Ford wagon. It looked like they did a chop and a section all at once. Obviously there werent a lot of details shown. It seems to me that I should do the section first so that I have as much upper structure strength as possible before bracing. Once the sectioning is done the chop should be easier. Or am I wrong? Questions: Is the sectioning necessary in your opinion? (Yes I know its a shit-pot full of work.) In what order would YOU do these changes?
