That grill may be worth more as a grill, they are selling fairly high lately.

That thing is looking really cool Robyn, I like how the headliner just goes with the flow!

Admittedly, keeping all those extra lines in there really worked.

How do the filler panels look from the doors forward? Hard to tell from here in flat grey.

I so want one of these. The hood lines look great in the front.
If no one from the future comes back to stop you from doing it then how bad of a decision can it really be?

I hope the lines are hard to see when painted. a 1/2lb of filler was used last night to sharpen the belt line at the door with a fade out towards the front. the soft curve at the top of the door panel extends through the fill halfway and fades out after the intersecting of the top two lines. the panel pulls in many directions and I fear will look like a fun house mirror.

So when Yu show up at the All Japanese Classic Car Show in North Vancouver this August 28th, what car will be pulling the Datstream? My vote is that you put a hitch on the wagon....

Wow, you smoked through this project!

That last picture looks like it got cropped. Will be odd for people to see it in traffic.

Well done!

thanks Jim.

I can already envision getting pulled for running trailer plates on the nickle. I just hope no one tries merging between car and trailer......

next step will be cutting up some mahogany door skins for door skins and sending the purple heart ship lap decking out for planing.

I'm with Jim, that photo looks photoshopped!

You'll have to be careful with your standard mirrors and the long load. I might suggest a an amber marker light at the front of the trailer. I believe it's actually a requirement here in BC.
The other thing you can do to help is make the side marker light(s) dual filliment and have a turn signal in them as well. You do live in Richmond after all!

WOW looks great!! The last pic does look 'shopped. Do the stainless drip rails follow all the way down the 'new section'. Nice detail - can't wait to see it in the flesh! It will look funny with that little trailer plate on there. Nice work man!
