Default JAWS 46 chevy coupe chop

Started this morning before 6 am. Stopped at about 6 pm.

I have been wanting to chop this car for years, I have said it for years that I was gonna. Today was the day.

I have been following threads, reading books and checking out pictures of this type of car chopped.

Here's my take so far.















I couldn't find any how to's on doing the b pillar in action so here are my shots of just it, inside and out.




Top ready to come off. My wife helped me.




















I am tired and will do some more later..

I don't think this turned out too bad for my first chop.

Brant

I like it and it's good to see that you didn't over chop it. Just right to give the sleek look without looking squished. Nice job on the quarter window openings too.

I was complimenting a guy on his first time chop. I wasn't questioning if his weld would hold!

Funny. You forgot about it needing a new engine and that I should remove the 8 and put in a 6.

Ass. I am glad we are friends and club members and that I may be one of the few people on this planet that get your sense of humor. I spit coffee out of my nose when I read that this morning, now I have to clean my keyboard.
