When I was a kid, a guy I worked with had a 51 dodge 4 door. It was soon ugly there was no way to make it look good. Yours has a lot of potential. After seeing what you did with the F6 roof I'm sure you could make it look great.

Thanks kenny. Trucks can be a hard chop as there is no length to get the flow right. So mostly they just come straight.

This is what I'm dealing with.
The bottom edge of the window opening is 3 inches above the cat walk.
To the top of the window from the catwalk is 18 inches
And the window is about 41 inches wide at its widest point.
Most of the chops on these. The rear window is laid forward whiich decrease te height of the top edge. BUT. I don't want the top of the rear glass to be higher then the rest. Like the top of the windshield and the tops of the doors
I could take out some of the metal under the window and bring it down closer to the belt line.
OR...
If I can find the right looking window (with the roof metal around it still) transplant the whole thing onto my Dodge.
So many decisions.....
Thanks for looking in on me.....

Check out a rear window and frame for a 40's chevy. They are smaller and look like they have the same curve.

I have seen the Dr. It looks great but i don't really want to cut thru the rear window or split the roof. And if I lean the stock window forward anyone sitting in the back seat might think they ae riding in a "Vista Cruiser" with the rear glass over there head.

Now the cats out of the bag OI. . I have a 41-48 Ford back glass and the local yard used to have a shell of one there with the back window surround intact.
I hope to get there this weekend.

Thanks for all the comments gang....

Too hot to work on the boat today. Nothing worse then sweat mixed with saw dust. Well maybe drywall dust is worse.
I started to knock together a new fountain for Mrs Torchie. The base is a old swivel stool that the seat wood delaminated.
The bowl is a 55 gallon drum lid that I took Thor's mighty hammer too and made it into a bowl.
Started to add some fru- fraws and decided that I had better see if it works.
I also had a surprise visitor so we got the doors hung on the Dodge.
Almost looks like a car again.
That's all for now....

The thing about a '39 Ford pick-up is that that ugly grille kinda' grows on ya' after a while.

Not taking anything too seriously.
