I actually don't think it looks bad -you've got a lot of very flat bodywork & it'd help to break it up a bit. Once it's painted body colour it won't stand out so much.
Have you tried clamping a length along the door or across the back & standing back to see how it looks? Can we see how it looks? I drilled the body panels on my Pop & welded the swage-line rod from the back to keep it tidy. Think mine's about 12mm wide, but that was to match the original Pop lines, (mine's actually made from lengths of curved profile bar from a set of French window locks, supplied by forum member Afghan Man, from his French farmhouse).

Hammered edge bar. Should be a third of the weight of the convex square edge you have. Unusual too.

0.9 for roof, and 1.5 for doors, they'll overlap like ford model A.   but they are straight with no curves.

spoke to the guy selling engine and box last night(cool laid back great guy off britchopper forum) he has removed everything i will need, delivery will be next week sometime.
but and this is a big but. i don't think i want the engine etc. i've said yes to it and i'm not the type of person to go back on my word, but reading up on them i think something more simple would be better.  i'll wait for it to be delivered then make my mind up. Undecided

Good idea.

Funnily enough, a land rover engine might fit.  Wink

Would be perfect. I've had three V8 110's and if the engine is not restricted, they can be surprisingly quick.
