    You can tell at a glance that Maneri's car is from Ohio.

    Here is a comparison shot showing what a difference 1/2 inch makes. The red one is chopped 3 1/2 ". The yellow is a 4"cut. Also on both these cars, the windshield post was leaned back instead of stretching the roof.

    I like 32 5W's unchopped or chopped a little or chopped a lot or with the top chopped clear off.

    Didn't have the heart to chop mine and now that it's done I'm glad I didn't. I chopped my model a coupe 4" and it was hard to see out of. 2015-12-23 14.16.39.jpg 2014-11-12 09.13.37.jpg

    When they look this good, why bother.....especially if the body is a mint one. Don't get me wrong.....all the different chops look good, but so do they when unchopped.

    I'm going with 2 inches. I think Brizio / United Pacific nailed it for me. I've seen this one in person and looked at lots of photos.
