    Working my brain on how much to chop my A (31). Does anyone know how much this 31 is chopped, it was built by a guy named Dave out of Oregon. I think the car is now in NH.
    Thanks for the help! $(KGrHqVHJBUE+MwEdmFPBP4N9s(oi!~~60_57.jpg

  2. If I were to guess, I'd say 6 inches.
     
  3. I was going to say 5 or 6 myself.

    if one wanted to copy a chop that was already done the best approach would be to take a snap with an inch indicator and start cutting it down an inch at a time until it looked right or do the same with the car, get it pretty close then remove a little at a time until it was right.

    Yeah I'm thinking it's in the 4"-5" range.

    That's 4-4.5" I would guess. Mine was a 5" chop
