How cool is this? Chopping a top is a blast.It is making a regular old car look nasty.The fun part is lifting it off for the first time and setting it down down low,climbing in and seeing for the first look through your custom windows. Oh yea ya got to place your arm on the window opening like your driving to see how cool it feels, YEA just right! Thanks for the pictures guys. Now this is what I call fun.
