Used the Revell kit. I rounded the front fender to much at the wheel opening and will get corrected to look more like the real fender,will be droping it some while at it. Nor sure how much i choped or or removed from the deck lid when pie sectioned. Skirts will get extended downwards and quater reworked to accept kustom taillight bezels.

Your body modifications all flow well. The body proportions can be very difficult to do without any jarring body lines. I like the mild chopped top the way you have done here.

Any lower and would have been a nightmare to get the roof to flow with the rear glass. I had to use a section from a 49 merc roof and some reshaping to the plastic. It was my first 50 Olds and a headache for I was driving blind. At theend im very happy. Now for the smalker kustom touches.

Thank you. You should check out my other work. I am a pattern maker. Not clothing but car parts. Mostly engine parts like valve covers

Final step was to polish both pieces to yield a smooth casting, specialy with the clear lense

Looking forward to where you go with this one.  I really like the older style customs, from mild to somewhat wild.  As already said your eye for proportions is superb.

Were I am with this Kustom. One side so far. I want to see how it looks before doing both. The taillight will ride right above the bumper giving the corners a sunken look. Might blend in the splash pan,we will see how the rest looks with primer first.

Wow.  Took  me a LOT of unfinished projects to realize I just don't have the focus to keep up with my imagination.   Outstanding work.

Wow Jesus, that is coming along nicely! Great work on the taillight and the rear fender extension. I can't wait to see all of the modifications you make.

Later-
