The upper patches are from the rear door window frames from the project car and the lower patches came from the rear doors from the parts car.
There wasn't enough material from the doors of the original car.

If Pontiac built a delivery, this is it. Perfect.

Body is looking good. Opinions are just that. In reality you are building the car for you and not us. And some of us have been proven wrong before so we all wait and watch it come together.

Kudos. The proportions are perfect as is. Just cause it's a hot rod doesn't mean you have to chop it.

Thanks everyone
I'm gonna give up a little more. The color that I'm gonna paint the car is Candy Apple Persimmon.
This was the color of John Mazmanian's 61 Vette drag car.
I found this in Street Thunder magazine after his death and it's been on the wall in my shop since.
