1958 Plymouth lowrider

Great looking Low Rider. You have a lot of good looking paint treatments going on. Did you alter the roof line on this ? Just seems lower in the C pillar area to me.

The roof is as it comes in the kit.   It was one of the complaints about that kit when it first came out.  In reality, it would have been a little crushing for rear seat passengers, but it does ad to the sleekness of what I was going for.   The only concerns that I had with the kit was that it has warp issues, most of which I worked out, but I didn't notice the front fenders until I had the car nearly built and was attempting to put the grill/headlights on.   Between rubber bands and clamps, I was able to get something that I could live with, but it still has a little of the old 1960 era JoHan promo 'smile'.
