    We started off with a straight 4" chop but from there we have a 5" up front and 4" on the back glass. I will push it out side today and get some good side shots of the car.

    We pushed it out side today, a 32 5 window insert is sitting on top the shape of it is pretty darn close to what we want on the car we just might use it. still the rain gutter above the 1/4 window needs to be curved and brought up not sure if we Josh will make a new piece or rework that one. Over all i am really happy with how this is turning out the chop has a good hot rod feel to it, i would love to cut another 5 window and change the shape of the rear and 1/4 window a more custom look to it, this car will be built as a hot rod the owner is liking the stock wheels and we do to time to make some plans on how to get the car sitting low.
    here are the photos of the car out side still a work inprogress the back window seams need some tlc yet but it is coming together.

    02-9-30-2014 011.jpg thinking the rain gutter should be brought down just alittle lower to help blend in some of the bulk of the middle belt line.
     
  5. Thanks for the detailed lines! If this doesn't kick me in the as$ to chop mine I need to find a new hobby lol.

    We finished up our end of the chop on the 36. Josh picked up some spray bomb paint to blend the top back in for now easier to see what it will look like when the cars complete if it is all one color. the owner picked up the coupe yesterday and i have a narrowed front axle on order for him. His plan is to keep the car with the stock rims just a smaller tire up front and juice brakes. and more than likely a Flathead powered. We might end up remaking the running boards down the road he is thinking a truck style running board would fit his end plan for the build over the stock rubber ones.

    We have kinda got the bug around here for doing a full build 36 5 window coupe, I would like to chop another one and play around with the 1/4 window a little more, and full on metal finish the entire car. 36chop1.jpg 36chop2.jpg 36chop3.jpg 36chop4.jpg

    Chop doesn't work for me.

    It destroys the car's proportions.
     
  9. And what would you do with the 1/4windows?
    You can see what I did towards the end of my latest below.

    Nice job - Did u end up using the 32 top filler panel or roll your own?
    It looks like it is a bit larger than the original opening.

    That turned out real nice, always nice to see someone start out with a good solid car. On the next 5Window you might want to make the 1/4 windows a bit shorter, cut and move the rear roof section forward and add a filler piece to the deck area, for more of a 3Window look., just an opinion.

  12. Looks Great! The only thing I see is the rear rain gutter should tuck in a bit (towards the window)and be lengthened some to just past half way of the quarter window. But you guys did a fine job with that much of a chop. It is not easy I know.
     
  13. Actually in this photo it looks right:confused:
