    That takes balls and skills to cut into a car that nice. I really like the chop! The only thing that doesn't sit right with me in my opinion (which is only my opinion) is the stance. I would drop the rear and raise the front a little but that's just me. beautiful car.

    Way to pull a thread out of the dumpster! Still a bit short on details, but the pics speak for themselves. Extra points for keeping the 51 backlight with a heavy chop.

    Nice work, -Abone.

    PS. The tail lights are definitely unique. Are they staying?

    Nice job, did you also do the tail lights
    Nice work and nice cut on the chop, did you also do the tail lights? I have looked at them more than once and still don't know what they are, can you enlighten us?

    Very nice!! The chop is almost identical to mine , except I used a 41 chevy back glass for a little different look . I am interested in seeing how you install your 4 link set up . Larry
