Supercharged03 S10 Fabrication

I am starting this thread to solicit comments and suggestions on my "Frankenstein" S10 - 40's style coupe build.

First up: what do you think about the way the leading edge of the Malibu window frame matches up to the trailing edge of the 55 Chevy windshield?

Looks like someone is going to be doing alot of sheet metal work. But It looks totally original which is good.

Looking forward to seeing more Keep up the good work

I mentioned this thread in my journal, but I neglected to mention the journal in this thread.

My journal of this build to date is here. Currently, I am chopping the top from my S10 cab using windows from a 2001 Malibu, a windshield from a 55 Chevy sedan and a roof from a 1958 Chevy DelRay.

The question regards the way the Malibu window frame matches up with the Chevy windshield frame in the attached photo. Does it matter that the two frames are not parallel and that the A pillar will look like an hourglass? Or should I lower the front edge of the windshield and tilt the windshield down at the front edge so that the two frames can be made parallel?
