    Chris your Shoebox looks great!

    Here is a picture of the rear windows set-up SLDDNMAT did on my 50. I think this is the same idea you mentioned.

    Hope the picture helps.

  6. Late to the party.... nice work Chris. Yeah, slanted posts are extra work (inside and out), but make a BIG difference!

    Hate you right back:D
    Back in Santa Maria, I was still holding on to that "Born to be Mild" dream, but I got over it.
    Its killing me, not to be able to go to Bonneville, since everybody seems to be going this year.

    Cool, I'm just gonna modify the existing regulators.
    I rebuilt my steering box just before I decided to chop the car, so I'm all set, thanks.
    The chop is not perfect, it will need some filler, but anything more than 1/16-1/8" filler seems excessive, I tried to make it work as best as I can.

    Best as you can sure seems to be better than most. You nailed the lines, and I suspect most of the filler will end up as dust on the floor...

    Looking great. A great example for others to emulate.

    Killer work Chris!

    I think the factory fucked up, they should have done it exactly like this.

    BTW Thanks for the beer at BadBobs HAMB BBQ, it was nice meeting you.

    Chris,

    You have some real tallent. Very nice. I really like the profile, which is the hardest thing to get right on a shoe box.

    Chris, Your shoebox is coming out great. The lines seem to be just right. Have you decided on the grille or tail lights ? Will be checking back to see your progress.

    You are truly a very talented individual. Where did you learn or how? I'm currently working on an off topic vehicle, and teaching my self body work. My hats off to you.
