I had to wedge section the interior tub so the frame would fit level under the body. I scribe'd both sides and the rear, pushed it up some and sanded the edges until it fit better. And I couldn't resist another mock up shot. Also I tried a couple of B pillar designs, but this one looked the best to me.

That wedge section job is amazing - the lines have a whole new flow to them, kind of like a Hudson. I wonder if any 1/1 Mercurys have had the same treatment?

Very nice profile! Like the choice of wheelcovers, will it have whitewalls?

The silhouette is beautiful with the hard top. I know the skirts are very traditional Hirohata style buy the think the front cove scoop of the skirt is fighting with the gorgeous lines you have created that work well with the dog leg from the fender to the door.

Thanks Glenn, it will, I needed to make sure they will fit. Their slightly taller than the radials.

Thank you Eric, I'm still working out the lines. But the skirt follows the front fender radius pretty closely. I still need to rework that area.

Managed a little more mock-up...

If I keep the lights I'll mold them in. The grill is from a 51 Chevy, I just trimmed the top hoop off. What ya think?
