Default '75 capella chop roadster

Hey All. Been a member for a while now, and I've been quiet, all the while making progress on my project. I think by now we've all seen our share of pan replacement and chops, so skipping all the really grueling parts, I'm now here. Front Beam adjusters for about 4 in lower in the front. New pans are in, and complete with mounts for seats from a late 90's Honda Accord. Comfy. Seats will be roughly 18 inches further back in the car, (15 for passenger side), and a new console dash will be extended into the car to meet the driver. 4" raked capella chop, and now doing body work, fenders and heater channels are all now rust free, as well as re-inforced, I'm not going to be using the heater channels anyways. As soon as the exterior body work is done, will be moving to the interior to make a new dash, lift the rear floor to make room for a turbo, and put in storage boxes. A true 2 seater. I also will be building a nice raised center console for cups and things. Any questions are much appreciated, as well as advice. Thanks all, and keep up the awesome work!

Looks like a pretty slick ride in the making. Nice to get the 'lowdown' on the chop.
