They're probably in those shoeboxes in the back of the closet, with all your other pics from back in the day.  Did anybody ever really put all of those in albums and label them all? ??? ???

i have never seen a 79 iroc i wish you had some pics of it. i thought the irocs didnt come out until 85? with this t-top chop, are you going to bring the pillars back or extend the t-top opening? if you extend the t-top opening i assume your never going to run t-top glass in it then? or do you have some sleek hook up on the glass?

also what are you doing to the back glass to make that fit too? i have never seen a chop top gen 2 f-body before so im just really curious as to your plan of execution on it. too bad you didnt have pics of the other chop top i'd really like to see how it turned out.

putt the glass from a 70 to 73? in it. you still need to cut all the glass.  there is a lot of work framing it for the back glass. it almost lays down flat. as for the tops I'm not sure yet.  it will be a hard top car being chopped. and I have a rusted out t top parts car, I will cut the tops off and install them into the chopped car.  but first the body mounts will be changed to soled and some frame work done. prob a drop cross member and 4 link and coil over's.

to get back to the car I'm working on. here is a pic of the back panel. I hadn't seen one like this in a long time.




I got LED lights for it to. hope they work and look good, for the cost.

Wow nice just on that quarter panel and floor boards that came out really nice.  I really wanna get into welding so i can do stuff like that. all i need is a welder and a sandblaster and a lot of practice.  Good job looks great

looks good. I see how your doing the chops now. that makes sence to use a 70-74 back glass thats where i was puzzled. sounds like a lot of work yet really sweet.
