Thanks Fred, and Ira....

im getting ready to chop the top now, i was diggin for some parts, and i decided to use the front suspension parts from an old revell 32 kit so i would have "steerable" wheels......i tossed them in the purple pond for stripping.

cheers
bryan

before i chop the top, i thought i would get all the frame parts together......

i stole the front suspension from an old revell 32 kit, and stripped off what they generously call "chrome"

now i will have poseable front wheels...

i chopped out the rear floor pan and fuel tank, after i make new crossmembers, ill chop out the front floor as well...

this one will be made as low as it can go without "Z`ing" the frame...

stay tuned

i think im gonna do one of those "angled chops" where the roof has a rake to it.......im not sure yet, ive never done it before, i might give it a shot.

cheers
bryan

Man Bryan, I was hoping to see that merc on the bench but then you went and pulled this out of your back pocket. I have been working on my "angled chop" on my 32 5 window. I did it in a way so that I didn't cut it in the middle but along the bottom, that way when I put it back it won't make my windows and roof look all distorted. I hope that make sense. It was my first time doing this as well but I did a lot of research and looked for tons of photos and it seems that when everyone glued there roof back like a normal chop it just didn't look right. 
I dunno, your pretty skilled. I'm sure you'll figure it out better then I did but in case you need a reference cause you have no idea what I'm talking about heres my 32 build page. 
Im excited to see what your gonna do to this one, maybe it will help me pull mine back out and get the working

I like the concept of dual air filters, but they kinda look like canned ham. :lol: I really like Magnum's idea though! Four leafed clovers for air filters would be pretty awesome.
