    It does look like the rear needs shortened a wee bit or maybe some of the trunk hump taken out??? :rolleyes:

    Very well proportioned, Your skills and eye a both most impressive.

    Not sure about the grille, don't hate it but a little trendy for my tastes.

    I vote for a dark metalic, since others have weighed in on color.

    However it's finished I predict it will get a lot of attention.

    Nice job!

    I like it!

    And I really like the wheel/tire combination and stance. Just because it's chopped, sectioned and shortened doesn't mean it has to be a taildragger.

    Like DRD57, I'm not too hip on the cam grille bar either... but it doesn't kill the rest of the car, so if you like it, I'd say keep it. Nice work so far!
     
  8. Nice work and welcome to the HAMB!

    Vision is right. Beautiful.
    And I like the grill. Caught my eye right away, made me look twice to see if it was real.

    I love what you have done to the body....but customs are supposed to be lower in the back than the front...other than that I'd say that you've nailed it!

    Bitchin' Johnny, through and through!

    I know everyone has their opinions but you've obviously made it this far without us opinionated people, so who cares what we think? Shorten it more? Lower in the back? No bigs n' littles? Bullshit.

    I say you've built this car to this point which is WAAAAAY beyond what most of us here are capable of, and only just a few very select people here could pull off that much work so cleanly. Don't let anyone deter your vision, stay on track!
     
  18. you could put some 56 olds headlights be kinda like the old grapevine. randy rhoades who built the clone used a 52 chev and cut the top of the front fenders and put 56 olds on there....pretty cool either way!

  29. Any chance of posting a photo with another car or a person to get the full effect of the body mods?
    If it's a gal with great legs, that would just be a bonus.
     
  30. Incredible work!!!

    I would have to agree that the back end looks kind of long now but I tend to find that is the case with alot of sectioned cars. As long as you are happy that's all that matters.

    Some build shots would be great or some of your other builds if the are relevant to this board.
