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.
 
Grill out of Chevy doors

Thanks Gastrick.

The two pics is of what was handed to me. Installed some 1" square tube for the radiator suport. filled in the window track. Angled top and bottem for air flow.
