The A pillars are not tall enough (revell's fault) so the chop ends up leaning downward as the chop moves closer to the windshield. Normally on a chop merc, the tallest part of the chop is the A pillars, everything behind it is either the same height, or slopes down rearward. just nit picking revells fault

But it's a chopped Merc!
No two are alike!
My chops (on real cars) were never the same.
Sometimes I would drop only the front, other times level, sometimes chop it all off!

It's a custom, and from what I understand, they copied a real car, that's not stock, was chopped, so there is no right and wrong.
True, it could have been different, but they gave us a great kit, one that I have actually gone to a hobby shop and bought myself (don't let this get around though).
I understand what you are saying, Ryan. I hope you take what I am saying as not being negative against your opinion, it's just that I come from a body/fender background, and we all have our own styles, and no one is the same (unless they are those infamous kopy-katters!)
A custom is a custom, with a c, or a k.

:lol:
