    I know this isn't everyones cup of tea, but I thought I'd post. We will be finished in a couple weeks, and I will post pictures of the trim installed and interior in.

    That is pretty slick! I wonder how it would look with about 2 inches channeled from the body, and another 2 inches chopped from the roof.:Do No:

    It's channeled now, and wont go any lower. I don't think I'd like the top chopped, and even if I did there wouldn't be any head room. You can see how we had to do the floors to save as much room as possible and it barely has enough space to be comfortable.

    thanks for the kind words. I was approved for a sema booth, but I dont care to mess with all of that. Im going to take it to goodguys here in dallas in oct though.

    I think it looks awesome with the channeled body and un-chopped roof. Can't wait for more pics.

    A lot of work has went into this car, media blasted, powdercoated frame, wilwoods all the way around, we're putting a set of 62 Dodge Furry seats in the front so dont be too mad at us for that lol.

    Only thing I need now is a super nice electra emblem for the trunk, the one I had sent out to plating came back with too many pits. So if you guys know of one that is super nice please let me know.
