    I tried just shortening the quarter window, with post intact. It's an improvement, although I prefer some of the other concepts for this car that have already been posted.

    @'Mo

    Since you're doing all that metal work, did you give any consideration to just removing the posts? And maybe taking some of the "bulk" out of the grille? Just some random thoughts.
    I'd keep the plastic tray on the rear fender though.

    Probably look better with both posts removed. ;)

    'Mo,
    Here's another thought. How 'bout a '48 Fleetline roof with "adjustments?" Might be easier and I think it was mentioned elsewhere one was available. As for the grill, '48 Fleetline grill w maybe just a roll pan under it. ugly 1 new hat and teeth .jpg

    Wow! Thanks guys!
    It's not my decision, but I'll re-post all for the owner to see.
    All these suggestions should at least serve to stimulate the creative juices.
    Thanks again, one and all...Some great ideas here!

    This is just an approximation.

    wrap a piece of 3 1/2 tape around the pillar would be the easiest, lower to the tape disappears.

    Ok I got the tape wrapped around the B pillar. I’m undecided on three different chops. 3”, 3 1/2” or 4”
    The first picture is with the tape at 3” the second at 3 1/2 and the third picture at 4”. If you guys could give me a hand with the photochop and paint the headlight bucket black I’d really appreciate it!

    Matt, good thing you did this, I was way off in my approximation. Here they are in descending order 3", 3.5" and 4".

    If anyone out there is real bored, I've always dreamed if putting the roof, windshield and all, from a 1971 Riviera on to a 1959 Chevy. Could it actually be done? Would it be a radical custom or an ugly abortion? I always thought that crazy rear window would look neat between the fins.

    I'll only say that I'm a big fan of sectioned but unchopped rides...

    Could someone remove the Chevelle and headlights in the rear window of this photo for me? I’d really appreciate it. Thank you.

    Thanks TheMoose!

    Looks a little clunky, but kind of cool. (red would NEVER be my color choice, for anything) Nice work.

  26. OK ...Here's a few more color options. If I remember correctly you are blue.jpg green.jpg white.jpg bit partial to bright white.

    I wonder if some lace panels on the C-pillar and roof would visually lighten the bulky look a bit.
