Hey folks! Long time member here, was here back in high school and got to know some folks on here way back in the day. It's literally been a decade and I thought I'd log in, catch up, and since I'm building a custom for the first time in a while, I thought I'd share. I picked this up off of Skoty Chops when I was working with him in hayward last year. It had been a running, driving stock car and the chop never got finished, so like most things, it just sat for a few years. I've been hardcore on it for about six months, and she's finally at the point I can drive and enjoy her, and it's about time to start the design and look of it. The top had about 3 and a half inches taken out of it, but only the front A pillars had been done and the rest was just gutted. I'm not a metal worker and I've never done a chop, but I wanted to challenge myself and made it happen. The rear window is out of a '50 Ford I believe. I converted it to a hardtop by smoothing out the body and blended the windowframes in the body. I'm kinda digging it as after all my searching through images of '52-54 fords, I've seen this done once. After new floorboards, wiring front to back, fixing a crushed passenger fender, and re-vamping the top end of the motor she runs and drives and now it's FINALLY time for some fun. I startedm last week with peaking the hood, and fabricated the eyelids over the headlights as I kinda hate the stock ones for these years. I'll keep updated as I build her, and I appreciate any thoughts or comments! My next step is smoothing the body and trying to figure out if I want to fix the old sixes OD or just lower the rear end gears to make her a little more highway friendly.
