Looking good. She's gonna be sweet. Can't wait to see it finished.
Looks great Chris!!! Nice work!
Damn nice work there sir.
Looking good, thanks for the update.
Very nice work, sir.
Subscribed to see how this one turns out.
I really want to thank you for taking the time to document this all very well. To me it says a lot about the builder.
killer chop and great pics...I'd like to see the way the car sits now that you have the C-Notch in...got any pics of that?
Excellent work! I've seen a few shops who claim to do this type of work for a living do much worse! Thanks for taking the time to document it all! Definately looking forward to seeing the car finished.
Very nice chop, I have a friend that is going to do his 51 and I'm emailing him this thread. Very, very nice!
Really nice work. I particularly like your "caveman corners" for detailing the windows around the B pillar.
Somewhere there's a woodshop teacher spinning in his grave !
Kool schewbaux, Chris!
" Humpty Dumpty was pushed "
Would love to do this to my '51 shoebox.
Slow progress on the car.
I'm doing my least favorite thing while building a car, BODYWORK, freaking hate it but I cant pay anybody to do it.
Here is the first round of primer.
I just partially shot the car with some poly primer, to re-assure myself that I'm on the right track, before I continue on the rest of the car.
BTW, the primer is still wet in the pics, thats why it's so shiny
looks like you are on the right track to me
Damn Chris! That looks fantastic.
awesome chris, did you just weld the rear tops from where you chiseled off the joint and then just shape to a point or radius the top. i cant really tell from the pics. but it looks awesome.
I welded that seem and shaped it slightly to a point with a grinder, and yes there is a little bit filler also.
Awe-inspiring, Chris! Can't wait to see it painted!
Amazing work Chris
Chop looks killer
looks really good chris, very well done!
wow its looks great! nice work buddy! any word on the muffler shop finding anything?
Very nice, sir. I too am on the "born to be mild" kick right now with the 50 I'm putting together. Mine is a coupe and i've been telling myself no no no.... tonight after seeing this the 1st time round i'm secong guessing. I've never tried the chisel for the quarter seam... nice one. ? for you if you will... how many inches have you lowered the rear (susp.)? I'm 5" down with no blocks and looking at 1/4" to the stock bump stop (2" tall). you put in a big notch... will you need to tunnel as well? great looking roof.
I think it looks really great,Chris! SMOOOOOOOTH!
