Comp cut-ugh

Am I the only one that hates the comp cut look?
Ned Bacon told me once that he was one of the first guys to do it, but I think he regrets instigating that look.
I under stand the ability to move the rear axle back and improve departure angle but I really don't care for it.

ultra trimmed wheel arches are fine, but lobbying off the whole rear irks me for some reason.

Ditto, not going to do it. I'm going to cut the wheel well out and move it back and inch or two, but try and keep the stock look.

Back when I first stretched the wheelbase on my Flatty I went with the comp cut, but when I rebuilt the tub I made sure to have a proper wheel well I also didn't like the way the comp cut looked..

I originally comp cut mine as well, but later I went back and made some small rear corners to make it look a little better.
