    very nice work on the car. also how much to chop the top and rear decklid on 1949 chevy fastback ? thankyou.
    • Here is a link to the HAMB thread these pictures were shared originally by the builder. Perhaps he mentioned how much he took out of the top to lower it: http://www.jalopyjournal.com/forum/showthread.php?t=208995

    Next to Terry Hegman,s merc., this turtle has the nicest rounded rear corners on the hood. A lot of guys miss the mark on these. The big difference being he removed the belt trim and molded the top to the body by softening the line as opposed to keeping the defined (sharp) line from the factory. This really cleans up that busy intersection. It's real hard to get all the gaps and lines even in this area in the stock form. Design wise the merc is so round , that I feel it doesn't warrent a square corner on it. It's a conflict of design. Just my take on these cars which I trully love.
