Painted some wide whites (terribly) just to see how it would look while i wait for my Modelhaus tires to show up. This was my first step lowering:
Here's where she is sitting currently. I'm Pretty content with it, What do you guys think? Also with some less drastic white walls:
And with Skirts... Yay or nay?
Thats all for now, Ill try to keep up with the build thread. Hopefully the next post will have the roof chopped and trim/handles shaved down. Any advise would be much appreciated. Thanks

On a closing note, heres My inspiration. It will be very loosely based on this, I just really dig the look without all trim lines:

Thanks for the comments fellas. Your advice means a lot. I Started shaving the mold lines and trim today and I think I will be omitting the skirts. I think it would look good if it was a tail dragger and shes not quite that. Going for a meaner look. Joker, nice clean build. Very classy chop. And Stu, Love your idea for the chop, but how should I go about filling in that trunk lid after I slide the window forward?
If you do it the way I suggested, you'd only have to add a strip of plastic to fill the gap between the trunk and the rear window. If you just chopped it at the pillars, rear window and all, you'd then have to lengthen the roof, which is more difficult and doesn't look as good to me.

Be careful chopping this. They look so much better if chopped corectly, but if you take out too much, they end up looking way out of proportion with the body. Think 3-4 inches in scale.
And I agree with the notion of bringing the skirts further down, if you're going to use them.

I like your black rim and white wall tire combi. Going to follow this build.
