Got the edges on the frame cut down to a good looking shape that I like and which also fits the rear glass perfect! Big Grin

Just spend a couple of hours in the shop and finally got the black bedliner sprayed on the wheelhouses and front inner fenders! WHAT A DIFFERENCE! Look the contrast between the white primer and the black bedliner in front, looks amazing and also tells me that I’m working in the right direction! Soon I can get the front suspension installed again hopefully for the last time! The wheelhouses also just looks amazing now, it just looks finished, I really like it! Smile

Wow!  Coming along nicely!!

Forgive me if you've already covered this, but did you have the glass custom made or are you using factory style glass with the channels modded to make them work as flush-mounted pieces?

Amazing work as usual, my friend!  thumb

Thanks man, I’m trying to move this project forward now in a good flow and it feels so good!! 

No no that’s fine Big Grin No the glass are actually the factory one. The channels are modified to fit. I raised the frame and welded some metal in the sides and the top to make a open space between the frame and glass to get 5-6mm all around the glass to create a modern clean look. The rear glass actually does’nt follow the angle of the body hundred percent, but I’ll try to make it look as good as possible from what an eye can see when I install the glass with glue. I have made space between the frame and glass so there will be enought room to put a nice stripe of glue on it.

I have actually wrote to Chip Foose to hear what a set of custom made glass will cost to get produced as them he installed on the Mach Foose car. They were around 2000$. I did’nt want to spend that Big Grin 

Thanks for the compliments buddy, I really appreciate that!
