Thanks, I was inspired by the hebroid, mine won't be a polished show piece though

I thought about getting a smaller fan shroud, but being that I lifted the motor and transmission 4" and channeled the body 4" I figured its just to much to compensate for.
I don't know what I would do if I didn't have my garage to escape to, probably go crazy

Thank you okpig!

So onto more updates, I started to cap the top of the doors and filling in sheet metal holes here and there.

Then I started to make the skeleton for the rear area of the car

Trying different ideas with the sheet metal

Rolled it outside to get a better view and started to notice that I didn't like the body that much, it started to look like a push me / pull me car. Also I noticed that it seems like everything was cluster towards the front, which I didn't like either. I prefer when the body of the car sits more to the rear.

So I did what any volksroder would do and broke out the cutting tools....

I separated the front "fire wall" and .125 steel I was using for heater channels from the body and cage and slid the body back.

I think the car has a better "stance" now and looks longer. Now I just have to figure out what I'm going to do with this thing

I like the way the car looks without the hood, any ideas on how to pull that look off without it looking like I just left it at home. I thought about trying to use the 32 grill like I did on my SB but this body is way to short.
