PS - On my 1/1 '53 Chevy, I added 2 extra teeth to the grill. Looked pretty good.

What?

 You said stern. Do you build Floaty Thingies too? Now,That said I believe that you could delete some of the trim on the Stern, to go with the long lean look everywhere else!

Question;

 What kind of wheels are you planning? I think I would go with centerline chrome with knockoff inserts!
