Thats gonna look okay. Kinda wild I think. Low to the ground and hopefully with Ford power. Hope you do it in a bright gold or emerald green with a contrasting white interior. Will surely stand out. Nice start.

Personal opinion here, but while you have cut it up so much, why not move the forward wheel well openings forward some? I always thought they looked too far back in the front fenders to begin with.

i was thinking you could kill two issues at once by shortening the front fenders the amount needed to bring the hood front in line, and that would take some of the "schnozz" out of the front end. close up the rear part of the front fender wheelwell a smidge. there's a conflicting line in the windshield posts leading into the header bar; maybe you could sweep them back a little at the bottom to follow the curve of the roof more... shoot; i wish i had one of these to play with now.... this is an interesting project you have going!

Well now, that is interesting. Very interesting indeed. Judging by how much time I just spent studying your photos, I may have to add this to my reference folder. Don't leave us hanging.

Curt, on examining the pics, I have to agree with your line of thinking. Being that the truck itself is now so much shorter in the height department, the fender length splice ahead of the wheel openings would be the way to go.

Either way and no matter what you do, interesting idea.

You are very brave doing these kinds of cuts. I've never tried anything like that. I'm always afraid to . . . it's just me. But this is going to look very different, I think, and interesting too.

You've got a great start.

What are your plans for the chassis?

I love this kind of surgery! Very good looking so far.

Even if it's just plastic it still hurts on the inside when a part breaks or a decal sheet is ruined,Or worse a surgery comes out wrong.This however is a risky job well done.
