I extended 'em so that they follow the lower body line. I did a thread on it a while back.
Haha!! Shhh....my wife might be a lurker!!
We miss ya up here Freddy.
It's still braced between the quarters from when we cut the top off, but the plan is to run permanent braces off the inner quarters to the floorboards and to the tunnel...just like a factory HT.
Thanks Rik...it really is fun to have a vision and make it a reality. It can be tough too...for some reason, the way I've put this car together in my head is definitely not the easy way out....but I just can't see it any other way...
And I guess it's time to unveil that photoshop you did for me some time ago. I can't thank you enough, you're the master.....
Of course the car has strayed a bit from that version, but it was instrumental in helping me decide which modifications I thought worked best together. Man...I don't know how the early customizers got it so right without the reference material we have today.
A quick thanks to my friend Paul Garland who helped me with the initial cuts and proportions, my club mate Adam (bigguylilroof on here), and all my friends on here that I BS with....especially custom guru, TheFrenZ.
That's what makes your car great - people who just take the easy way out, have no passion.
Wow!!!! Rusk that car is so beautiful man. Definitely a classy looking custom. I would give both of my nuts to own that thing. Nice work!!!
Again Bryan, Im very excited for you and the excellent feedback you're getting ... very well deserved man....
Rikster, you are a talented MOFO man. You PS skills are out of this world!!
Looks great! Does ther belt line rib stop definetively about 6 inches behind the 1/4 window? I hate when theyre fumuddled inot nothingness.
sharp short! love those 51s
looks great man! you going to make midnight mass with it?
Oh Boy, not much I can add to the previous comments but I really do like what you have done and have planned.

good work bryan, heard you talking about it since i first met you, glad to see it all coming together.
Damn Bryan that thing looks like it could've been built by one of the greats 50 years ago. You do awesome work.
I like this car.. very cool
I love it!I'm looking at a 50 Pontiac coupe to buy and that's just how i'd chop it!
I love it. that is def a cali custom!
Beautiful job! I love the way the top flows.
what a difference! looks amazing. I love the work on the quarters
Perfect! The side window(s) opening is great. I like the way the top of the front door edge is rounded at the A piller....good eye!
That thing looks so sick man. It's going to be beautiful!!!
Looks great1 That is going to be an incredible custom. Reminds me a bit of the Landon Chev (if it was hardtopped LOL) which is probably my favorite Chevy of all time.
Yeah, that Chevy is looking great. Seeing work like this keeps me inspired.
ya Bryan, lookin sick bro. Although you could have saved some work and just had few big girls sit on the roof and get same effect!
Top Notch work my friend!
YES, YES, YES, that is extra NICE -- looks like a well planned custom.
