    Here are a few more photoshops I did of the chop. The second two images would have a 32 header with a leaned back A pillar. Big issue with that is the door hinges, got to take one out. The last one is a 5.5" chop. This is shown on a 32 frame just like my roadster, which I'm not totally ruling out ;-)

  3. The leaned A post and no visor really goes well with a heavy chop. The 32 Frame effect will be lost with a 6" channel won't it? Now if your going to run a 32 Gas Tank I say yes.

    4" channel, but it wouldn't be channeled if I used the 32 frame. A lot of the channel work was done, but not enough that I can't go back.
     
  5. I mixed up numbers. I was thinking of my Roadster at the time, it's channeled 6". A 4" channel could work on 32 rails and if you used a 1" spacer to start leveling the flat floor on the 32 rails it might save you a ton of rework on the structure. Just thinking with the key board here.

    Mocked up the t5 to the flathead. Made a simple stand so I can sit it on the floor.

    Took about 3.5” out of the stretched frame. I like this proportion better.
    I do have a 32 frame on order... so it could all change... or I will use it for the other body I have...

    My Dad put this engine together and got it running, this is before messing with the carb... I'll post a better video later.
