Wow, it's deja vue (deja view ? ) all over again !! I've seen this done somewhere before .... Looking good man !! I went through the same decision making, photochopping process before deciding that lengthened doors would make the proportions right.
Amazing how similar the GM bodies of these years are.
Now I have a new fav build to follow

Been in the shop doing the normal tack-n-weld so needless to say no pics but, the 33's coming along.
I'll do some more panel replacement and post those pics.

Default Little more rust

I found a little more rust thru on the cowl and A pillars so I cut the cowl off the parts car and will be using the biggest part of it to fix the project car.

These are the areas





The drivers side A pillar has rust on the inside flange and that's all I'll replace there



The cowl vent is is rough shape so it will be replace too



This is the parts cowl



This is how much we're using



We cut he firewall loose at the spot welds and will do the same to the project car.

We're gonna work on it today so I'll have some more pics later.
