    I'm sorry... but that chop is killer! Well done & I'm glad you (Ben Haag) had the stones to do it to that level!!!

    The combination of the A post angle and "wedge"of the window is just gorgeous.

    Killer chop! How much? About 5-1/2" in the back, and 6" in the front?

    image.jpg View attachment 3445756 Hey Flop, this shot scared me for a minute-looks like an odd place for a 3rd brake light?...by that I mean anywhere on a louvered deck lid or anything a louvered lid fits on. Haha Nice metal finishing and GREAT Work!

    I am going to hijack this thread for a second Mr. flop....

    This body has came a LONG way since i ordered it as a pile of pieces from Brookville. I was fortunate enough to see the car in person, during several stages of its assembly. The assembly work and the detail are mind blowing. Everything carefully test fit, shaped, then re fit.. Then before anything gets assembled, its primed in the hidden areas and made sure its going to be protected. I was lucky enough to help saw the roof off as well. Definitely not for the weak. I knew i wanted it hammered.. Once we set the roof back on, we knew it was perfect. I spent 3 days lending a hand chopping this car. We made a lot of good progress. In those 3 days i really saw the skill that was taking place. This chop was the icing on the cake. Couldn't be happier with the work that has been done. Absolutely stunning.

    If anyone wants to see this car from the very start, till its finished, here is a build thread:
    http://www.jalopyjournal.com/forum/threads/the-ben-haag-394-b-32-ford-3w.1009026/

    Another month or so, and itll be pounding the roads of NC. There is alot in store for this hotrod in 2017!

    again thanks FLOP!!!
    see you soon buddy

    I thought that Flop liked his own post which I could understand but I didn't think you could do that then I figured out it was a screen grab of his post...o_O

    That there chop is better than a plate full of kick-ass tacos . . . and if you know Flop, that counts for something! The more I see this, the more excited I am about my 34 coupe -- like a kid in a fricking candy store I am! GREAT Work!

    Very nice work Flop , bet you have a few hours in it massaging body lines and the end result shows it's worth it . The window frames on the doors could very well drive a lesser man insane :)
