Does the middle of the hood miss the middle/center of the windshield when fully opened? Not just near the lip at the bottom, but the actual center of the glass about a foot above the lip?

I think the B-pillar may be a bit too far forward... [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/funny.gif[/img] [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/funny.gif[/img] [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/funny.gif[/img]

Yes it does. The Type 3 doesn't have as exaggerated a gooseneck hinge as the Beetles so it doesn't come back as far or as high.




I like this shot. Look at high low that roof line is compared to the opened hood. [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/funny.gif[/img]

I love it John. [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/Dancing.gif[/img] So that's what a 6" chop on a type 3 Fastback looks like. [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/hello.gif[/img] Well at least you got some practice for the other car, and you learned what you might run into as far stuff getting in the way. Have you figured out how you'll move the "C" pillars out to meet the body yet? It's a good thing you've got an extra roof to use a a filler panel between the deck lid and the base of the rear window. [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/biggrin.gif[/img] Looks good. [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/thumbsup.gif[/img]

Are you going to leave some sort of a sunvisor to the roof, it maybe a good kustom touch??

Actually, I am thinking about leaving the c-pillars right where they are and rolling the top of the body out to meet them. I will still have to widen the front of the roof to allow the cut-down windshield to fit better, so I am thinking of cutting a slit down the center of the roof and adding a pie-shaped filler piece. The front only has to come out a couple of inches. The filler piece would be a traingle with a 2" wide base and close to 3 feet long. I think I can get everything to flex around that piece without too much distortion. This is the kind of stuff the practice car is for. [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/funny.gif[/img]

I am considering it. I like the way it looks with the overhang/visor. Will see after I get the proper header on the windshield frame how it looks. If I do add one, it will be blended into the roof, not a bolt-on.

I think the different trim would look wrong with the straight stock body lines. They ahve to follow each other to look right IMO. I am looking at a couple of options for straight trim. that will look different.

What about replacing the rear fender air vents with a row of Buick portholes?

Exactly what I was thinking. Strait trim in a different profile and thickness, big spears, maybe not continuous from front to back. Not exactly, but Tri 5 Chevy-ish.

More cutting today! [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/Dancing.gif[/img] [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/Dancing.gif[/img] [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/Dancing.gif[/img]

Started cutting around the rear decklid to lay it down for the new rear look.









Looks like the decklid will work just fine. I am thinking about using two of them and lengthing the flat part of the decklid to take up some of the gap and between where it is now and the rear window. Will make a larger trunk opening and not have a large filler panel. Might but air intake vents in the panel though too. Hhhhmmmmm, lots to think about.

First lesson learned from the practice car..... Move and welded up the cowl/windshield frame first, before chopping it shorter. It is just too flimsy with the cowl cut loose and the top header cut out. Plus I want to stand the wind shield up a little bit and that will change the height of the chop if the chop is done first.

I thought about the portholes and even have an early sketch showing them, I just didn't think they looked right on the rear of the car. I am going to need to do somehitng to get air into the engine....probably something hidden so I can have the smooth slab sides I am looking for.
