    Of all the cars ive chopped i only have 1 pic like that, its of Bulls car during the build, i guess its because im usually working by myself on stuff like that and dont take the time to stop for photos, oh well! i guess we had alot of help that night with Bulls car and someone was manning the camera!

    The moment of no return (or at least really hard to return from :eek:), and the finished (for now) product.

    53chevtrev, that is how that car should have came. Great eye you've got! I wouldn't mind seeing as many pics as you've got of that thing. Awesome car dude.

    Love the coupe. The chop, color, and engine/tranny selections are sweet. (That's the best color for a Nailhead IMHO). I'm just embarking on a 29 roadster/364 nailhead project myself.
