Attached are two examples. Both come from CA. Haven’t seen any pics of this being done back in the day? Low profile look when removing the windshield to run at the dry lakes? Was it for a special windshield frame? Welcome any input or old photos. Thanks.

    Sorry I don’t have any answers but I seen that pair for sale and thought to myself that’s a lot more work for a lot less chop than just chopping the uppers. I’m curious too, anyone?
