Holding the "Ctrl" key and tapping the "+=" key , I zoom in to study your build details.

What caught my eye was all the wire reinforcement you do on the window frame and

door opening. I'm sure it adds stability while you attack it with the files and sandpaper.

 

Thanks for the sharp and uncluttered pixs.

They make me focus on the bodywork.  popcorn-vi.gif

James........I have dropped builds in the chopped top fab.....I have sanded in the chopped top fab........they broke every time.........I  learned that I had to do something to re-inforce it  ...... so I tried the wire trick and it really made it strong.......I don`t need to be etxra careful while handling.......plus it adds detail to the door jams........thanks.

Hello.......thank you all for the kind comments..........I did some surgery on the dash.........I could not figure out what dash the 1:1  came from........it must have been custom made.......so I used a Chrysler dash and customized it.........I still need to do a little work to it.........not perfect but, good enough for the girls I go with........also made shifter , steering wheel and a telephone........I think the phone will look more to scale once I putty paint and add the cord ........thanks for looking.

Definitely a contender for "World's Most Ridiculous Custom!" An interesting and well-done build, though, as your projects always are.

Cool build. I'm really looking forward for more updates to come. Bodywork looks excellent so far, and I like the chassis too. Your building skills just keep me amazed.
