I have not posted an update on my coupe for a while. Still pounding away on the body and mods. Here are a few pictures of straightening out the trunk opening shock mounts we fabbed and current profile shot...

The set-up was time consuming mostly because I needed to take everything apart after each move to check fit and gaps. But in the end I feel it was worth the effort for the results!

If you stare at it long enough the pass rear light looks higher than the drivers side . Probably cause of the plate tilt.

Wheel base on my Coupe is 107" a stock A is 103. Current plans call for orange paint with ivory scallops. Steelies with small rings and caps.

That will be a nice color combo for that car. I have kind of decided on Washington blue with tan or yellow wheels and pinstripes for my T coupe but by the time I get it to the paint stage they will probably have invented yet another type of paint . I learned painting with lacquer and acrylic enamel.
