Nice, any pictures from the rear? Like to see how you're doing the rear window.

Right now its in stock form. Once I get the body on the chassis I'm going to figure out what needs to shorten and if I'm going to shorten the roof or the window or both and by how much.

Right now I don't have a picture of the back of the body I don't think, I'm planning for the back of the body to end up just above the trans and just behind the fan shroud.

WOW man! That's quite the project you got going on there!

Keep it up!

I think the pointed windows look PISSA too, too bad you aren't keeping them...

Talk about cut, weld, & drive!

I'm just rounding out the very end just enough to fill it in. They'll still be REALLY pointed.

Definitely going to do a 3-4" channel on the body, the doors and fenders are way way too tall for the roof chop. Also need to get new heater channels on the body so I can bolt it down to the chassis.

Then I can get everything put back together and see if that brings the front end down more, with 5" of lowering you would thing it would sit a little lower, but the beam isn't even compressed at all right now... weird.

Not really, but its sitting on a bit of a hill right now so it makes everything look like it slants back more than it really does.

Once I finish tacking everything up I'll push it into a flat spot and take another picture with the fenders and hood mocked up.

Probably going to have to notch the hood for the steering box too, its REALLY tight.

Still looks the same to me as when you started. Just a small black rectangle with an "X" in the middle........
