  5. Thanks for the kind words folks. Worked a bit on the a-pillars and got the doortop done and fitted on driverside. Now is when one gets a good look of how it will be . P1030894.JPG P1030896.JPG P1030897.JPG P1030898.JPG P1030900.JPG

    That's the way Ford should have made them, you have a great sense of proportion. Looking forward to the completion. It is going to be black, right?

  10. I'm getting ready to chop my 34 5 winder - and I really like your chop. It isn't too radical (I get tired of the SoCal coupe Bonneville look) - your proportions are really nice. I wasn't going to lay the A-pillar back, but the slight amount that you laid yours back looks really nice.

    Nice work ,thanks for sharing and keep the pictures coming!

    You found the key to cut line placement. Really looks great.
    Awesome work!

    Nicely done. Looks very smooth and well proportioned not just hacked to make it lower. With wide whites ,some skirts and ribbed bumpers it could pass for an Westergard style custom.
     
  13. When I planned this chop my goal was to make it look good with and without fenders. I really like what Rolling Bones are doing but fenders are no option on their cars. 33 and 34´s are tricky to get right .I´ve studied a lot of chops and sorted out what I liked and not about them. It´s really easy to make them look flat and the quarterwindows too square and that happends when stretching the roof instead of laying the pillars .On a heavy chop it might need a little bit of both. Extend the roof a little bit above the door and lay the windscrean back a bit for right proportions. I´m not saying one way is right and another is wrong but this is how I like to see it. Good luck on your chop

    Thanx
    Actually I had a plan of maybe doing it as a custom but since I allready building my 36 as a kustom this will be a hot rod. One of each must be the best of two worlds.

    Some more progress. Upper corners above the a-pillars needs to be fabricated .

  20. Well now everything is pieced together again. Took it outside to get a good look before welding it back together . IMG_0576 (2).JPG View attachment 3707450 P1030931.JPG P1030932.JPG P1030933.JPG P1030935.JPG

    Chop looks wicked.
    Something about the tire size is messing with the look though. It needs to be dropped a bit or something.

    really like it fenderless...
     
  24. Suspension will come down anoher inch or two for the right stance and fenders will come off aswell.Still wants the option to put them back on if I feel like it.

    That is one of the best proportioned chops that I have seen. I really like the side view. I'm not a fan of leaning the windshield back so as to have a wedge shaped side window. ;)
