    The body is channeled 2.5", the quarters and hood are sectioned, the fenders are moved up 2.5" on the body (still in stock relationship to the frame) and radiused and the front wheels and arches are moved forward 2". We're just getting started.

    I'm not normally a fan of sectioned cars but this one sits real nice. Good work.

    Yes! I think it's because there were small amounts removed, not over done!!

    Tony Nancy? I always heard it as Tony Danza yellow, as a jab towards Danza standing right there... Either way, cool ride
     
  26. Looks killer. What about a certain caddy? are you going to be at LA roadster show this year if so I keep an eye out for you.

    Nice, that is going to be one slick car that just might make a stock bodied car sitting next to it look a bit out of proportion. Not wholesale changes that slap you in the face but very subtle changes that just improve the lines a bit although they did take a great amount of work to accomplish.

    Looking good!
    2.5" channel.
    fenders stock to frame.
    It's still got running boards?
    Either you extended the fenders so the running boards would be 2.5" lower or you cut 2.5" off the bottom of the doors and 1/4 panel.
    Which is it?
    Just curious...
     
  29. That's sweet. Keep us updated please.

    Still has running boards which are still in the stock relationship to the frame as are the fenders and bumpers. We cut 2.5" off the bottom of the doors and quarter panels
