Thanks. I just finished cutting a helpless little 2010 Mustang into 8 pieces to build a Pro Stocker. Maybe this will help me put her back together again.

Ya sadly finding this was to late to help me when I wanted to cut up my 50 chevy P-U which is hopelessly junk now. Maybe i'll make it a one off convertible lol

Here's a thread I did on the '34 3W coupe for a dry-lakes-look chop with the windshield laid back...http://cs.scaleautomag.com/sca/modeling_subjects/f/30/t/97207.aspx

Here's another one, a more upright chop on a '34 5-window coupe, with the top lengthened instead of raking the windshield pillars.....http://cs.scaleautomag.com/sca/modeling_subjects/f/30/t/93953.aspx

Scroll down...it's all there in detail. Between these two, it's really all you need to know on older cars. Make your windows from flat clear acetate or styrene at the end.

Here's a trickier one, the '37 slantback shell. http://cs.scaleautomag.com/sca/modeling_subjects/f/30/t/96454.aspx?sort=ASC&pi209=1
