That's a good way to build upper body strength and work ethic!
...plus it saves on labor costs.
Well if they weren't supposed to be doing it, someone should've put down the camera and stopped them. They really don't look very committed to the task at hand.

looks like you may have the better worker on the drivers side. i at the least see a better cut angle intention there hahaha.
are you as ready for this stupid white stuff to go away as i am here in hickory? the good news is i'm seeing forecast of high 60s low 70s by mid week. crazy to think that mid this week i was trying to shovel the drive so we could get out...ken...
also the passenger side worker needs safety glasses and give the other one a face shield. hahaha ( sorry but I deal with students with tools everyday and safety is habit forming)
anyway, good job getting the young'uns involved and keep it up.
We all started somewhere.......They must have read those "little books" where they were showing how to chop a car..
Is the owner not home? By the looks on their faces they think you're nuts.
to tell you the truth, I've seen more enthusiastic faces waiting to see a dentist.
Think of the bragging rights:
"Chopped my first car when I was ten...".
First cut should be the highest point on the pillar. That way, when you make the second cut, you aren't chasing the roof around on the floor, while trying to make your cut. Nice picture though. Stu
There goes the neighborhood. Bob

You gotta remember North Carolina does have child labor laws! HRP
I did my first brake job on my Dad's mercury when I was 10 so that's about the right age to start I guess!
It's cool that they wanted to be involved . They can learn to weld when it goes back together too .
Post reminds me of a football player nick named Hacksaw Reynolds. He cut a car in half with a hacksaw. Good job on gettin the kids involved.Take plenty of pics of them for them.
You think you guys are sick of it? I live in Boone... We got over a foot last week. tons still hanging around...
Looks like theyre doing a good job.
Best way to get a kid off their butt... put them to work. lol
I had my stepson helping me prep a car for paint a few weeks ago. Hes 5... I wanted for him to help me paint the car but momma wouldnt allow it...
We rarely get snow in the upstate of South Carolina,but Tuesday we got snow,Wednesday we got more snow,ice and freezing rain,impassable roads Thursday and Friday we had a earthquake..the sun finally came back yesterday & today! HRP
then today you guys had another earthquake hahaha....
The first cut is the deepest.
I've seen your work on several rides. Lucky kids with such a good teacher. If they get in to it they are gonna be good.
See, even a seven year old knows that a merc with a stock roof is not Right!...
Your flame thrower saying was REALLY funny! Made me Laugh! Thanks, Kevin.
