    turned out great..wish my hardtop vent windows were that easy! Hardtops have pot metal frames :mad:.. and i agree.. chopping isnt too bad to do.. you just really need to think and re think the glass before going too crazy on the chop.. i got my glass in and still had a few minor problems with my rear corners.. but got it to work! anyways, great looking car, good job!

    Thanks buddy... it was your thread that I studied about a hundred times that made me go for it. I choped my model a first, but this was a whole new animal. lol
  10. I keep going back and forth about chopping or not. Maybe this one stays stock and the next one is my chopped custom. I could always tell the wife this ones for her.

    Your thread has me wanting to attempt it. Maybe i should practice on a pinto or something of no value

    I bought my 52 a couple weeks ago with this type of thing in mind. I was curious as to whether or not you'd be willing to email me the pictures you took while documenting your project as some of the key ones don't come through. My email is Thanks in advance for any help you can provide me!!!
