  6. Been contemplating this on my '55. Have done it on a few '56s but not on a slant cab. Thanks for the photos

    Now that is something that I would have never thought about doing to a slant cab (or a 56 for that matter). I have seen many hoods pancaked but never a roof. Kinda interested to see what it looks like when completed. I assume that the drip rails are history on this cab.

    Drip rails are going to be gone. The hardest part with pancaking the roof on a 55 is the back roof line, it has a lot of compound bends. It takes a lot of relief cuts to get it right.
    I droped the lid 1.5" and took the crown out Im happy with it. I hope the customer is too.;)[​IMG]
