Whoa, wicked chop! Let's see now, it was six and three quarter popsicle sticks before the chop, and five after......that means the chop was one and three quarters of a popsicle stick, so if the popsicle stick is 0.067895 thick and divide that by the ratio of uh I for get z z zz zz zz
I've been building custom models since the 50's. Does that make me experienced, or just old? I'm old! Gary Hatstat
Nice. This build just keeps getting better. I like those wheels and tires for it but I'm sure whatever you decide will look sharp. I see you already have your trademark windshield tint strip on it! Looks good.

Pancaking the leading edge of the hood is a great strategy and complements the extension of the headlight surrounds perfectly. Like Gary, I'm glad to see this back!
Also, this era od American car is fiendishly hard to chop - indeed one often wonders if it should even be done - but this chop not only works but improves the look of the car. This promises to be a very fine custom, with styling faithful to the tradition but with a hint of the contemporary to it which actually complements the traditional vibe. Looking forward to more, more, more!!!!
Loving it. Looks like a D'agostino custom. As Bernard points out, chopping these is tough, but the results are worth it! Are custom taillights in the works? I never found the stock taillights very convincing.
