I'm going to follow this one very closely! I like the Chop Top idea, because when this kind of car is lowered, it looks much better when there's not too much head clearance. Your Chop looks great, just low enough, but not too low. Was it hard to chop? I've chopped one '49 Mercury by AMT and that wasn't very simple-not planning to do that kind of job again, but with this car I might have to do it though. Your proves that it looks great when chopped, even if it's still in rough stages.
niko, i agree with you once their in the weeds, the top looks too tall lol. since the roof was cut and moved forward it was really easy to work with. taking the window frame out before the chop it allowed it to lay flat giving it that fastback look and also the glass wont need modification it just falls into place. this is acctually my first chop top so only time will tell how it turns out :-D
thanks for watching!

Looks great! Not feeling those wheels though. Needs white walls!
But as said earlier, I really like the body lines, you did fantastic job with chopping that one, very nice!
