  2. Very tidy car Aaron you have done a nice job on this entire build. Enjoyed it all.
    Looks like you cut the front post at the bottom and the doors and body near the center, what was your thinking on the front post cut so low?

    My thinking was, if I can take the 3" out without moving the windshield swing arm post, and keeping the same swing arm ratio on the windshield it would be much easier and a lot less work. This turned out to be a great way to do it. Reattaching the A pillars was a breeze, and the windshield went back in (after taking 3" off the top)super easy too.

    I like the small cuts and small files to get it all lined up. Very good.
