Another thought hit me

While I was working away on the Bucciali-ish like car (we have to come up with another name for it) I needed to raise the windowsills of the doors a couple of inches, but while I had it cut apart I raised it up the full chop height just to see what it would look like. I looked at it for a long time -I like it! not for this car though, I need to build another with this type of treatment, long door panels -early attempt at a higher security, or maybe a VIP tough guy car from back in the day. Don’t chop the roof bring the sills up, hmmmmmm, don’t know what to do about the front windshield though……

    don’t know what to do about the front windshield though……

    Raise the entire hood to meet the windowsills, and extend the front and sides ‘down’ to meet the body. You may need to extend the hood to fill the gap to the windshield if the windshield slopes back too much.

    tip the hood so the front stays where it is and the windshield end is raised to align with the windowsills. Again, you may need to ‘fill’ the gap.

    Hey Stony I sold you alot of parts overthe years at swap meets. I have a 32 Plymouth Hearse , bought it out of New Orleans LA. and am currently doing the same treatment to the side panels. My solution to the windsheild dilema was that being as thiss is shaping up to look like an armoured car, I built a windshield surround and side, back window surrounds which look like bullet proof glass has been installed. Made the car look so intimitating, TOUGH AND EVIL IN SATIN MIDNITE BLACK WITH SILVER LEAF AND CANDY RED PINSTRIPES
