like a lexan rear window, you can get the plate mounted anywhere and a 3rd brake light in it also

Very nice work. Also very nice styling. Many times you see one or the other but not both. When both come together it is great.

Lexan windows are nice for awhile. After awhile they get scratched and are never optically clear like when new. I think Weimer is going to put an electric drop down plate underneath. If not that then I would just make a bracket to set it in, inside the rear window. Personally I don't like the plates sitting all diagonal and such in the gates or windows. It's different but I think it's tacky looking. I saw the job Weimer has done on the bed of his truck and he has done an awesome job. Looks like he's done a heck of a job on the hood also.

Looking Good!

Man you do good work Weimer, you a pro? They are offering a Auto body course at the JVS starting next month, I am considering walking through it and see if I can pick something up. I took the welding class at the the College and learned a lot. m Have you decided what color your painting it?

Thanks guys Actually this is my first attempt at anything this extreme. I have tinkered around with different things before but never anything like this. I was always intimidated by the thought of doing bodywork, but I always wanted to learn how to do it. I must say that it is EASY...It is very time consuming but I absolutley love doing it. My wife pointed out a saying to me today...She says it was 'me' - Its not about driving something kool, it is all about building something awesome.
When I go out to the garage to work, I lose all concept of time. I think that I am out there maybe 2 hours and will look at the clock and it will be about 5 hours later The wife is behind me 110% to get this truck done, and done the right way...she comes out to check out the quality of my work and brings food and then leaves for awhile. She says she can't wait for me to get it done so I can take it to shows while I work on my Chevelle. If I only knew somewhere to park it after it is completed so I could get the Chevelle in the garage to work on. I haven't even begun to do all of the mods that I am planning on doing though. There is still a looong way to go before I even start to think about suspension,interior or motor/trans. Oh well at least it'll be paid for and I'll have fun getting it there. I am planning on a 2 year completion date.
Later,
WEIMER
