Looks great man!!!! It is definately on my list of "things I want to do to my car"!
turned out great..wish my hardtop vent windows were that easy! Hardtops have pot metal frames .. 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! CJ
looks familiar!! nice work man!!!
I have an old 52 broken glass on sides, front. I keep saying that will be the one that's gets the chop. Hat's off to you for your skills and showing us.
Looks great. I love the "I'll figure it out" attitude.
hey, i'm still diggin on that stone house.
Came out really clean
looks good dude............
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
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
So did you try yet?
Nice thread, I just put the bracing in my 51 Chevy this afternoon, started drawing off the chop lines, getting ready to do it too!!
Nothing new, still want to do a custom grill and maybe go with some skirts... not sure yet. Just been driving it and took to a couple of local shows. I kind of got into another project right now, but maybe over winter I will finish it up. Here is a cool pic of what it looks like now...
when i seen you were going to chop it..i went noooo..then i seen what ya made of it,,damn...nice...its very fluid now..has that cool stance..good job
Thanks... wasn't sure I should have done it at first either. Happy I did now, though.
Nice job on the chop, looks great in the pics.
Grand Slam. Looks great (and you made it look waaaay too easy).
just saw your rechopped model a ,im digging this one too
Looks great. You Aces and Eights guys know your stuff when it comes to chopping cars.
Sweet! Would love to chop my 51'.
Great Job on the chop top !!
How did I miss this thread?
You nailed that top - looks great!
Nice chop! Keep up the good work

Haven't been on here for a while... Thanks everyone for all the nice complements!
So... Did you ever go for it?
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 firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks in advance for any help you can provide me!!!
