PICS: A '49 Ford Convertible mild custom that sits right but could use some help to make it more in proportion....

so I did a few edits to see what it might benefit from.

As found:

49 Ford CV   Mild Custom

With rear bumper raised and pipes moved out a bit:

49 Ford CV   Mild Custom   PSX (1)

With rear and front bumpers tucked and slimmed:

49 Ford CV   Mild Custom   PSX (2)

Played with tail pipe size and location and dechromed the deck. Also cleaned up the side trim behind the front wheel and removed the external gas filler. 

Any thoughts or comments?

Enjoy!

@jack-dodds: Thanks, Jack, but I believe that the slimmer bumper in the last photo is more in proportion to the rest of the car. Regardless of which one prefers, the old shoebox sits right.
