    yeah, I've had a few people complain about how much I chopped it, but I've seen a couple with the same chop that looked so good!

    this is one that has the same chop

  6. Everyone has there own personal taste including myself. I like a full blown sled like your doing. Keep on going your doing a hell of a job. I'm more conservative but i love radicals.

    I think the Shoeboxes can handle a radical chop like the red one above. Some cars cant. Nice work!!

    That is one seriously hard chop to your shoebox.
    As others have said, I'm not so much into big big chops like that, but it looks great. I reckon you have nailed it and I'm looking forward to seeing the finished product.
    I look forward to you posting more pictures soon.
    Cheers.

    This is my shoebox chopped 7 and 9 like yours but my pillars aren't leaned? I am 6' 1" and ride comfortably in it. I do duck when I hit hard dips but just cruising is not bad. I drive it in long trips as well.
