The method I came up with but haven't initiated is a bit different, my way consisted cutting certain points on the fenders, doors, and quarter panels to weld in 2" of extra sheet metal for width on each side of the car. Either way, keep up the good work!

That would look awesome. I'd love to see that done. I'm going for a more wide butt look on this one. I'm actually trying to have the facia appear narrower to give the whole car a more arrow head shape visually. I'm doing everything in glass so that it will be reproducible and make it available to anyone who likes it when I'm done. If I could describe what I'm after, I would say knowing how cool the 67 Eleanor turned out to be in the movie, Gone in 60 Seconds, I wonder what the first Eleanor would look like if it were redone and back on the street and then hope I did the car justice.

    A few shots of our progress

    Added in a brake cooling duct

    Shelby inspired duck tail in place of the rear wing means a whole new deck lid and quarter end caps

    Working out the exhaust ports in the lower valance for the custom tips

I am very impressed with your work. I think the end product is going to be a very unique eyecatcher. I like the little twist on the truck lid to give it a shape change that really sports it up. The 68 is a thing of beauty as well. Would love either of your cars. Wish I had the time, skill and vision to carve a car up like that and make it beautiful and dramatically different. Looking forward to the updates. The front is a thing of beauty as well. WOW!

When I saw this post I wasn't expecting high quality work like this because I have never seen it done, or posted on a forum.. I will be watching this thread, this is amazing. Can't wait to see more pics!

welcome from Luxembourg, Europe.
The guy with the blacked out Magnums would be me but it´s only temporary to keep the car on the road while I´m waiting for my new tires to put the 18 inch rims back on.
Smile
Nice work! I´m really looking forward to the final result. I already like the air ducts in the quarters and the front fascia.
