I personally like what you have done already. I think the panel side actually looks better and gives that window a real nice line. I'm not oppossed to the rear window either, just like the panel more. I also like what you did to the front wheel opening and the nose but I was wondering if the fenders still flowed into the motor compartment when you open the hood? I thought that was real cool, lookin great tho, keep it up

Thanks Jason! no fender flowing down any more ,but I will put something there.

I got the hood fitting good and added a peak down the center and under the rear window.

The new inner wells came out looking real nice. Btw, that tail light treatment is freakin' killer, probably my favorite feature of your build so far. Keep it up

Are you using enamel? I use a dehydrator with enamels, it speeds things up a bit.

I use Dupli Color Laquer Primers & Filler/Primers from the Auto Supply Store. They always air dry Fast!

Plastikote and/or Duplicolor dry pretty quick. I can prime and sand the same day with no dehydrator in Florida.
