Volvo 240 Rat Rod

Having recently recently aquired another of many slightly deralict volvo 240s, a 91' 244 (sedan), I thought I would persue a rat rod project, and oddly enough, while popular in europe, this is seldom done by the US custom volvo community. I plan to take ~7" out of the door pillars, a process I have never done before, possibly lower the trunk line, close the rear wheel openings, shave it,.. I have little experience with custom body work. I am sure I will have many questions as the project starts, however, first I will solisit ideas that board members may have for this project.
