Op, I just finished reading this entire thread and I must say you are a talented & patient man. Very nice custom work! Can't wait to see it done with the wheel/tire arrangement you choose.
Yep, were pretty close, if you ever get the notion for a Sunday drive you can find me hard at work in the garage.I love reading this thread and am always excited when I see you have posted something new. Your skills and attitude are amazing! You asked for thoughts, so here's mine: One of the things that I am not a fan of in most of the wide-er bodied cars I've seen is the huge angular open space in the doors. My personal taste is for smooth panels that flow from the front fender to the rear fender. Perhaps there is no way sculpt it that way due to the geometry of a working wider door built onto the original car's door.
. . . just my two cents worth.
No matter what, I'm still a huge fan and I hope to some day meet you and see your car in person. I think we are only about an hour and a half away from each other.
Thank you Sir. Most days its insanity =/I love checking in on this thread. It has been very educational and has taught me that I have neither the acquired skills nor the patience to ever attempt a project like this. I am in awe of the high level of both those attributes that you have displayed here.
