Randy,, just a personal thing of course,, but I think it looks better without the visor,, more of a Tall "T" look,, the viser looks like a dozer blade ,

"NO OFFENCE" just an opinion,, like a belly button everybody has one,,

Its really coming together nice, and a fantastic job,, what kind of power drink do you use,,,???????????? I want some<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<

Your build. Your choice.

For me, I like it better without the visor.

Your progress is amazing. Looking very good! ENJOY!!!

I like the visor for this reason....

Artistically, the rear body has a lot of "mass"... almost "tailheavy", but the front body looks "sparse". I even thought about suggesting a header collector below the rockers, just to add some "bulk" to the middle of the car. Now there is more visible bodywork in the cowl area, which I think adds to the balance of the design. Just my two cents.

It does make the windshield area have the look of a chopped top without sacrificing any of the dimensions. I think it looks pretty good, but I'm excited at the idea of it not being finished just yet, if only for the suspense factor. Randy, you have quite an eye for detail, so which ever way you go, I'm sure it'll look fantastic.

homemade c-cab

Randy,
I like the visor, But looking at it from the side, you have a big curve, then at the post it goes straight down. JMO but I think it would look better to curve out like the visor to match. Again JMO. And you did say you were not done so maybe I'm jumping the gun, The car looks great.

Bob
