Don't forget about what my phone camera does, either. I have given up on trying to get a back view that doesn't look wonky because of the rear window panel. Roof has to be last. I do have some different views of the tail light thing. Figured I might as well tackle that at the same time as the bob job so it can all be approved at once. So you might need plenty of that patience.

If I do any more edits that show wheel, I will put 15s on it special, for you and Mitch.

17's would be OK too. The size of the hole in that rear tire may just be picture perspective, but it looks like a 20-24 from here.

So far, it's looking like the edit I picked........


I breezed by a pic today that I took for you that got stuck in my LS series swap file. No idea on year, just thought about you when I saw the car.

Did I never say the wheel diameters? 18" front, 20" rear.

Tire sizes:

Front 26 x 8.00R18LT

Rear 29 x 18.00R20LT

As far as I can tell the current planned-for-use steel wheels stop at 15" width. I don't know if wheels will have to be custom made. The tire fit thingy won't do 15" width and the front suspension sits too high to mock stance with it. At a quick glance it appeared to me that the front will want a 7 or 8" wide 18" wheel with 3 or 4" back space. For the rear, a 15" wide 20" wheel will need around five inches back space. What I wish for is sidewall protruding in the rear, but not tread. If it were a 50 series tire, sidewall deflection might be enough to cause rub. Its tight. I would now and may later show you the tub clearance but lighting is problematic. Wheel ordering will once again be a nail biter but people who spend like this... they want them fenders crammed full no matter what vehicle. Glad I just do metal.

Thats a fairly square looking rear view but does it look like the roof leans to the left? I think every last specimen contains wonk.

I overheard boss and owner talking about colors and tailpipes and having Murray do a rendering. Thats been my cue to do edits previously. Since those caught on with the boss and aren't charity work anymore, and since I have a side with bob and lamp there now...

This might be the time for me to explore the editing feature "interpolate". Doing so may allow me to make "rendering"-looking images like a pro but I haven't gone there because I think realistic edits convey ideas much better. But if thats what they want...

Maybe it will rain and I'll whip something new up. Perhaps based on a previous straight-on rear view. I have said all along that I planned to but I have lost interest. The edits just don't have much effect. But... you gave me a good pic I could modify just now.

Are you glad the Model A tail lights up on the fenders got picked? I just barely got a hole cut and taped stuff together. I think I would like to move the bezel forward a little but the A man and I agreed that straight across from the trunk gap was a good height.

Incorporating the tail light into the fender, the way you did, is really cool. As for location, I was thinking a little lower would look more old school hot rod, but for safety sake, where you have them will provide better visibility, which we all know is paramount with all the distracted drivers on the road...

Yeah, the thing I don't like is the far lamp being obscured in a 3/4 view. The higher and more frenched it goes, the worse that becomes. I almost would suggest some unobtrusive side marker LED dots somewhere along the fender lips, both ends of the car. Maybe approximately where the old carriage bolts for the braces were.

I thought the oval shaped lower lens was a reflector but its a lamp. Now I wonder which lens was what light.

Hey, while the iron is hot... any exhaust tip ideas / preferences are welcome. Boss mentioned something slot shaped that kind of echoes the exposed tire area's shape. There was also favorable chuckling about a center exhaust. Talk to me, tips are easy.

I don't think it has to be any more complicated than this-









But I will need to be mindful of tire clearance at the housing. If anybody wants to see how I defined the oval cutout I can detail that on the other side.

Just went back to the picture I posted and can see way too much fender. Your bob job looks a good amount.

Thanks much. Full length fenders seem to me mighty vulnerable-looking without a bumper. It will have to have all the metal there and bare, or all in black to get the full effect. I have the body shimmed a smidge too. All said and done, to most folks, the bob is probably going to look a little shorter due to eye levels... than the views you are getting. I just want it even.

First quick slice-n-clamp shown. Looks uneven yet. Much eyeball involved.
