that is impressive !

what are you planning for the back ? I always thought a sedan delivery style door would look different yet make the rear area more accessible.

I have been throwing the back door idea around for a while now.. But I'm thinking about one door paint to look like two doors from the back.. opening to one side.. It's to small to have two, And to low to have it like a hatch back... But opening to one side would give so much more room to get in and out..

Looking Great!! I love the swoop visor, your eye for detail is very good. Having been a biker most of my life--8 carbs would be Wild! If money..LOL..wasn't a concern, twin/canted blowers with dual carbs
Speaking in around about $$, how's the bill on the steel to do this awsome build? How many sheets so far? Square tubing?
Also, I use to belong to a car club in BR, called the Hybrid Classics. We would put on a Memorial Day gathering back then. They still around? I had a '47 Ford Business Coupe with a Merc Flatty then. Later--John T.

Thanks.. I didn't add it up yet, But the $$ right now are around $600.00 dollars... I bought 5 4x8 sheets, 1- 24' 2''X4'' Rec tubing, 5-20' 1''X1'' Tubing, 2-20' 1''x2'' Rec tubing.. I had a lot of drop off's on the sheet's also.. Don't remember the car club..Not sure..

I think its too large. IMHO

Two smaller ones, one either side of the license plate might look good or maybe just shrink the one.

Thanks.. That's why I asked.. I will have Four pipes, Two on each side of the license plate coming back with 1959 Cadillac Tail Light on the end of them..I wanted to hide the wide plate over the license plate with something.. I was shooting for something that would make your attention be on other things instead of the big flat spot.. I didn't want to many of them shapes on the car.. Thought it would be to much..


Might take it off and just air brush the name across there..

Honestly Randy, I think it looks better without it on the back, Just to much now the airbrush idea that would work. JMO
I do like them on the sides.

I think It would look better if it was hinged at the top and opened up like a hatchback! Door not hanging of to the side its just up out of the way!
