Well here's my next project, It's a Revell Henry J gasser kit that I chopped somewhere around 4mm and now I'm working on converting the tilt front end into a "stock" one with an opening hood and I'm using 57' Chrysler taillights. I'm not really sure how this build will end up but right now I'm thinking It'll be LS powered and definitely down in the weeds.

Very cool. Liking those pointy rear fender tips. Looking kinda like a baby Cad.

Looks cool. I'd like to see.some better, close up photos of how you extended the rear fenders for the taillights. I've got to do this on my 51 Fleetline and I am looking for ideas.
BTW- I started rebuilding one of these with a removable hardtop. I should drag it back out soon.

Later-

I don't think I've ever seen one of these chopped before. Very nicely done.

I chopped one of these a few years ago got it to this stage and the paint started to peel off used black from the Kustom colors from house of color then i shot it with the clear they suplled and it made the paint peel off. I have it stripped and have to redo the rear fender wells as I wanted stock looking ones. Here is is in paint before the clear.

Very cool. A sane man would have glued the doors in before starting this. Obviously we have seriously disturbed individual here. I like it.

Looking forward to this build. I had a 1:1 of these back in the 60's that I stuffed an Olds engine in it along with the hydro. Had trouble keeping the front end on the ground :P
