Talking My missguided metal work (the side work)

Well my youngest brother asked if I could fix and shave his doors to his 50's studie pickup. This brings a new meaning to shaving doors, he doesn't want windows or the trim or the channel for the window.

I thought the V-Drive from a boat would make a cool project with the engine in the rear, and backwards. Sure make people stand and scratch their heads trying to figure it out.

I have seen the V-drive done before. At our local 1/4" strip years ago a local here had a chevy van and could run the 1/4 in a wheel stand. I have also seen a few in hot rod mags.
