Default Re: The Chop Photo

we were worried about something twisting so we build this structure inside the car to hold the top in place as the cuts were made. You can see the B pillars have already been cut.




Here is the finished project........2 3/4 inches from the front to nothing in the back......the top layed down in place

When I chopped my 57 Buick , I didn't have 5 helpers
so made a wood a-frame to hold it up.As the chop
was to be 2-1/2"a block that size was add to the a-frame.
After the a and c pillars were cut and reworked the
blocks were removed and top lowered .
