Wow...That is really nice. I like the chop a lot.
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.
I look forward to your build pictures.
that is awesome! hopefully you can bring it saturday.
Late to the party.... nice work Chris. Yeah, slanted posts are extra work (inside and out), but make a BIG difference!
wow looks great! btw i found a rebuild kit for the steering box, i know you were looking where to buy, do you still need one?
what no inch thick bondo? thats how you do it. not use to seeing true craftmanship. looks great chris. billy
Damn Chris. GREAT JOB! Certainly one of the sexiest chops I've seen
Thats a brilliant idea what to do with quarter windows.I guess it'll help me with my 51'.
Thanks for posting that pic!
Beautiful work Chris! Those slanted pillars look awesome and the chop is perfect!
Just awesome work man!!
Hate you right back
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.
That is beautiful, makes me want a shoebox...
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.
You have some real tallent. Very nice. I really like the profile, which is the hardest thing to get right on a shoe box.
Amazing Chris!!!! Great job man!!!! I wish i worked that fast!
Since both of us bought our "shoes" on the same day and have the same name I think I will be bringin my car over to your place for a little "body work"
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.
I think I just got a stiffy. No,wait. Yeah. I just got a stiffy. Looks good, keep, it up.
It looks neat.
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.
so rad, major skills!!
You make it look so easy!
This looks sooooooooo good, everything about it! the panels you wheeled up for around the rear screen are simply amazing!!
