    Chris, the chop looks awesome out in the sunlight. Nice flow and very well done. This is a very good example of how it should be done.

    These are really quick and I'll see if I can get to the skirts, lowering job and two tone another time. I just gave you a few different color options that would get you started. The reason I thought purple was there was a Colorized Vicky that Rikster did in TRJ a couple years back and I always thought that purple could be a really cool color on a custom as long as it was done right....like really nice body work and the rest dialed in. Dark maroon is a staple of custom cars and I like the fluff or the power blues and greens lately. Anyways, I'll sleep on it and see if something pops in my head.

    Have you decided to go with the classic Buick side trim??? or the '57 Pontiac??? Then you could go two-tone... Line the Pontiac trim up with the "B" pillar and paint it Candy Brandywine and Pearl White... I looked thru the thread, but couldn't find any pic's of the Desoto grille??? I'm sure you have your own vision, I was just dreamin' there for a while... Beautiful job!!! Keep up the good work...
