Technical 32 3 window . Chop chop chop .

Discussion in 'Traditional Hot Rods' started by Flop, Sep 17, 2017.

  1. Against the law in Mich --by looks of the W/S. 6 .5" MINIMUM SIZE W/S GLASS. btw save your drop pieces i did to in case someone else needs them to go back up with the top not likely but its happened before bob s

    I built mine--- completely accept for the trans - wanted to show you a picture over 30 years ago. I see you saved all 3 hinges, Smartest thing you could do. Steel doors begin to sag over time on 2 hinges,BTW thats one sweet 3-window , for the great shape its in bob s

    Flop, truly amazing work once again. Forget metal shaping workshops, I'll pay to hangout, get the coffee and hand you tools.

    I have to make a die for the pull max to reshape the reveal to make it flow a little nicer . Then just weld it all back up .

    Pullmax! That never got any camera time, guess that is were the great body beads that match the factory ones come from. Have a Happy New Year! :) Bob

    Well it’s not actually a pull max it’s a Japanese knock off from the early 60s called a vibroshear

    Vibro-shear. Sounds like a fun man-scaping device. < cough > < cough > :) Sorry Flop.

  15. I chopped mine the same way.Only thing i see is great metal work.....but i know this for a factFirst are you running 3 stock hinges?If yoy are you can't eliminate the top hinge The door because of the way the door opens- once chopped it tends to drop the door ...if they are steel also. Been there! done that! on 2- 32 3-windows.but kept the top hinge intact no sag after 33 years ago.on this yellow deuce. I had under a quart ---of mud with 3 other coats- and "allmetal," Chevette roof turned sideways is perfect fit should use chevete 4-dr. sorry I got carried away abit-but I have a love for the Deuce I've done 3 of them completely accept for the transmisions

    I totally know who to call if I ever want to “raise the roof” as you my friend have nearly enough pieces to breed a whole other body ;).

    Flop, just wondering......do you have some sort of waiting list? Doesn't see like there are many craftsmen with you skill level. Keep up the great work, and keep posting!
