Here was my first attempt at chopping a top! I had fun with this one too! Here's a few pics.

Don't see a chop like that to often . . . looks pretty cool !   The blue frame really stands out ,  nice buld .

And not just any chop, but a raked chop. Seems to me that would be harder than your normal chop. Well done.

Very Cool, I saw this and had a flash back to the 70's.  This was the same kit I did my first chop on, not as radical as yours.  Mine was strieght chop and left about 1/4 inch to look out of.    Very nice.................I may just try this again..............Thanks for the memories.
