    • Site Upgrade   11/18/2017

      The Forums will be down, Sunday, November 26th starting 9 AM PST for upgrade.We'll probably be down until 1PM PST, but it might be longer. I'm doing a major forum software upgrade, so I expect the forums to operate somewhat differently when we come back online.  Update: I've had a medical issue come up, and this window might not get used. 
      Update 2: I'm moving the upgrade to 9 AM Sunday.

I also decided to shave the fender trim since this is going to be a mild custom, I might shave the rear fender trim too but I'm not sure yet.

I figured I'd throw in a quick pic or two of the other Olds I'm working on since I'm building both of them simultaneously.

Very nice job on the fastback. The coupe looks like grape tonic.

Personally, I liked the way you grafted the top. It keeps the flow of the windows and body lines nice and neat. Great job!

This update is much appreciated and VERY critical for those of us who would like to do a fast back version of the 50 Olds...... the key issue here is the cuts that Billy has noted....

Great work and thanks from a big time (real owner) 50 Olds fan!!!!

Regards

Bill (Duntov)

Leave the rear fender trim, that makes a great point of reference & adds a little "flash" to the side view (also helps people recognize it as an "Olds".
