Very nice work on the chop. Looks very well proportioned. Love the skirts too. They really lengthen out the entire car.
...And if you call in the next 20 minutes, cause we can't do this all day...

That chop flows so nice.  It'll be slick!  I dig the skirts also!

My progress looks way to slow, compared to others. Im trying hard to keep mud to a minimum, and everything is getting tigged.  I also managed to buy a house, and that seems to take up way to much time to especially with movin.  Well heres pics of both

So after a little break for life... time to get back to work..have had a few hiccups along the way... but time to get moving again.  So found a 74 nova for $300.  Took bout everything and anything I could... sold some, kept some, junked some, and came out $100 to the positive

So rolled outside to do a little cleanup... and start putting the brakes/spindles together.. original plans were for a 57 ford rear end, but after getting it home and taking a blaster to it.. wasn't much left.. so swapped for a Chevy bolt pattern and stuck together.. the cheesy wheels are just temps..

After lots of cutting the inner fenders finally cleared the front suspension... then some more cutting to make room and look descent.. andfinally fit...

So more parts painting and put front suspension together.. have some fine tuning, but will work for now... making progress and off the blocks for now... still a ways to go, crazy how much small stuff goes into making stuff fit
