    Always liked the 35-36 bodies as the last of the pronounced body reveals, thought this build was going wrong when the rear quarters were lost, but must admit the 'A" replacements look to fill the voids in handsome fashion. A bit of well thought out & creative metal massage probably in order to create a diminishing sweeping arch to marry up the wider 36 reveal from the rear roof area to the narrow "A" quarter reveal.

    @dirt car yeah it’s something on paper that seems like it shouldn’t work but I totally does. All ya gotta do is cut the car up in every direction until it looks right!

    need to sit it next to a stocker sometime

    yeah I think the A quarters really help keep the car in proportion ive seen a few fenderless 36s non of really have a great flow and size to them in my own opinion. and you are right once I line up that body line it should bring it all together :)

    The more I see it the more I like it, like Austin said, the 35-36’s do not look good fender less but this thing is badass!!!!

  6. The truth is at least in my opinion is that the '34 was the last of the easy fenderless hot rods. The '35/'36 in original trim really need fenders.

    That said there is a neat trick you can do with a '37 tudor sedan. But I'll never do it so we can leave that one out of the mix. LOL

    Yes, if someone were to describe that lil' coupe to me verbally, I would not picture it looking good... However, seeing is believing and that rig is ridiculously cool!

    I’m digging’ everything I see. Not sure why a small few always have to run their pie hole though. Build it how you see fit. Their butt’s not going to be in the drivers seat. Keep the pics and progress coming.
