    Sorry guys, I'm still sick with Bronchitis and trying to struggle through SXSW.
    Maybe I can post something tonight.

    No rush man, just take care of yourself. Bronchitis is a bitch, I've had it several times. The only good thing is it helped me quit smoking cigars.
     
  5. Geez madfish. you've been dealing with that for awhile now. Hope you beat it soon!!!

    Could someone photoshop these into a chopped 2 Dr custom. Try to leave below the window line stock height. The rear part of the roof in particular bothers me in stock form

    I messed around with the top and doors for an hour and couldn't get anything I really liked. Then I had an idea. Take the top from a 4-door '51
    Frazer Manhattan hardtop (or similar Kaiser Virginian) and mount it on the older body. The newer top was chopped by the factory and was pretty sleek. It was still a four-door, but with a glass partition between the front and rear windows. I just eliminated the partition in converting to 2-door coupe.

    I used another photo for the base to get the right angles. Hope you don't mind.

    Thanks guys, I like both versions of the Frazer that you guys modified. The hardtop looks real nice but, coming up with a Manhattan for a donor could be very tricky. Thanks again.

    Thanx Moose that looks great, kinda' dig the Stude dog dish caps, and the color makes a big difference. Great job.

    That Frazer is a damn difficult car to cut on, every shape seems to want to fight me. I tried for a 4 door version (not bad IMO) and a coupe version (not very good)but fun to play with.

    I have my eye on a '53 Packard for sale locally. I'd say the place to start would be lowered with nice paint (similar to the Larry Earnst '51 Chevy). I have lots of other ideas, but paint first. [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

  21. You didn't say what you had planned for the trim so I left it alone except for extending the trim forward on the front fender for the color break.

    Packard Royale Final 01.jpg I took a similar approach. Unfortunately, didn't have any digital nitrocellulose lacquer at hand! Version 2 - I added a bit of polish to the paint.

    Wow. You guys are awesome. I like the first paint colors a bit better. I think I may remove the gravel shield, and paint like the second photo.

    For the headlights, it's hard to beat '56 Olds (they're probably used too much). I thought about mounting them up and out just slightly.

    Also, I think I'll go with one-piece side glass, because the car has factory air conditioning.

    Good choice, this is a much better looking color combo.
