    Just love the look of the chopped Taxi, awesome. Great job on the pick-up, I really like the use of the door for the rear of the cab and keeping the stepped body line gives it a unique look, very clever. Can't wait to see this coming along. All the best Mark.
    the difficult takes time, the impossible takes a little longer

    The door tops had begun to be rounded at the top corners, but the gutter just ends suddenly. (although its difficult to notice it in the picture)

    I looked at some hotrod pick ups at the shows for ideas of how it ought to look



    Oh well thats just ideas at the moment, I'll have to sort that later.

    Next I cut the floor out, this was cos I wanted to channel it by 4and a quarter inches, also to move body back on chassis by 16".


    My goal is that this will eventually be unrecognizable as a taxi, with the for hire sign gone, the chop, channel and moving the body back on the rails will give it a "wheels out the front" hot rod look.
