Jason,

Congrats on the 1st place.

It looks awesome.

 

I would like to see some pictures of it completed in "under glass"...she deserves some more of the spotlight

Chop top lesson for me, thank you.  Looks spectacular.  If I'm not mistaking the wheels are Pegasus 23 Centerlines.  I always thought they looked best dulled down and used on muscle cars, but chromed and on your build they look "hearty", like the rest of the car so either way you're good.  Great job.  I want to see this when complete.

I whole heartedly agree with this statement.  I did a chop on the 50 olds I'm working on after seeing this.

Chop top lesson for me, thank you.
