I think the first ones... I am betting on you going with a billetmobile though with those rims, otherwise... ya, after another study, go with the first ones.

Well i have been sitting here going over and over with ideas, finally i came up with this, no cutting has been done as of yet but maybe with a little encouagement i will move forward with this,lol. i have been searching the web for pictures of a de-fendered 37 coupe with no luck, so referance is out the window, but i would like to think i have a good imagination and some ok scratchbuilding skills so im sure i could wing it. please let me know what you think of this, rat rod style, maybe some slick paint or maybe just primer/flat black.

thats a very awesome chevy. here are some updates, i actually got a nice ride hight without notching or z-ing the frame at all, just a floor pan lift and the frame tucks nice plus the lowered suspenion parts that come with the kit and its in the weeds!! i also fabbed up some inner wheel wells and filled with body filler, also fabbed up some breaks, i had a spare set of brembos from a ashomia rx7 kit.

Now im nowhere near being ready to paint yet, but im up in the air still weather to go with something glossy and smooth or maybe primer red/grey? or flat black? or maybe semi-gloss black? or maybe even a sloid color i.e red,blue,green ext. but in matte form?
