    Great to see your progress.  It’s looking awesome.  The Devil’s in the details, to borrow from another CCC member.

    Looks great Doug. Those rocker trim pieces are a work of art all by them selves, glad you are putting them on your car.

    Slow down Doug. I don’t want to play second fiddle.  Hehe.

    Looks good mate. Hoping you might inspire my mate Peter to do a mild custom with his 41 Sedanette.

    I like the forward angle on the B-Pillar a lot… very nice

    Add a wonderful Gaylord Top feel to it … And I always like the smoother Gaylord tops.

    Ah.. yes the Herb Ogden Buick.. That car is perfect, and so is the shape of the top. Perfection.

    I spend a lot of time looking at that one at the 2011 GNRS Customs Then & Now.

    Doug, when you do a new posting you have the option of using Visual or Text mode. You can choose that on the right top side of the window where you write the text.

    If you use Visual, you can add images with the “Image” icon (the one with the mountains and sun, on the right side of the icons). This option embeds the image in the post at full size.

    If you use the Text mode you can use the “img” button to share images hosted on another site, or you can use the “Attachements” option on the bottom left. This last method adds the images as small attachment to the post.

    Hi Ric……Thanks for the Ogden Pic …a great side view…and it is perfection…I havent chopped mine as much…we have a specification in our Australian design rules….size of the aperture windscreen opening … the line of sight when seated in the car….if mine was chopped the same as the Buick I wouldn’t pass engineers report….so I have to settle for 5″ chop….
    I see the page review tabs now …miss things like that as you get older
