    That chop didnt improve the lines of that 36, it ruined the lines, IMO. The roof is no longer round and flowing, its flat. At least its shiney!

    Wow! Great art as always, Janne.

    Since it looks like it's going down the very traditional California late 40's -
    early 50's line, I would like to add a few things that would make it even more
    stylish and traditional in my eyes..
    1. Like we always argue about, ha ha... Appletons!
    2. Front bumper guards and license plate
    3. Use the fastback quarter panel trim mouldings. They are much longer and
    stretches the look of the rear of the car.
    4. Rise the front at least 1". Now it's a little too flat with the ground and has
    no "stance".

    I know your opinion about the spots, but... On these kustoms they lift the
    car from the late 90's touch... :D

    I really like that you haven't done the sidewindows with rounded B-pillar, just
    leaning it. I am looking at the same treatment for my Merc to be a bit
    different from the Matranga-look.

    Keep up your fabulous work!!!
    J.B.
