    Chiming in again....looking at a 49 dodge business coupe , the belt line has a distinctive seperating line below and around the rear window...suggesting that instead of flowing the roof line , creat that parting line....otherwise it's the same old same old. ...just sayin...

    Maybe they have it confused with the 50 Ford 3 window Steve Stanford drew pictures of and was later created..>>> Chaporis? It is known as "Kopperhed" [​IMG][​IMG]

    If he adds French doors to the car he might need your input , otherwise I think he's got this covered.
    Great work as always.

    Man, you kids don't mess around!! "Poetry in motion" as usual.
    I'm always learning by observing, and watching you make sheet metal go in multiple directions (in a limited area) utilizing compound curves and a ton of natural ability to create "flow" impresses the hell out of me! Nice work.

    I edited my earlier post to avoid the "drama pit"- ain't worth it.
    ( now Raymond, behave!)( I DID laugh my ass off!)

    Thanks!
    Thank you!
    Thanks so much!
    Here are some progress shots:
    Made a wood buck, made a rear window surround from scratch, & cut down curved glass to fit rear window surround. Still a ways to go on the metal shaping, but it's coming along.

    Beautiful work. That buck you built is art in itself. Can't wait to see it completely fleshed out in steel.

    Good job on the buck...was that CNC'd? We make bucks all the time building planes. Great for keeping shape while bonding.
