    Yes there is. @Tim and I have devised a plan haha. Between all the reference pics and measurements I’ve began marking the car out and removing the old wooden roof that was worse for ware last night. It will get the cut off wheel Saturday evening after work. Timm has done a lot of footwork in getting a plan of action for the chop

    IMG_6765.JPG IMG_6764.JPG well after a long day at work I cam home made a little progress took two cut off disk to the welding hood and decided maybe I need to wait till morning restock and maybe go at it with a sawzall. Strap from rafter too rood to help take some of the weight off so it doesn’t bite my disk spinning at 10k rpm and send them into orbit

    IMG_6779.JPG a chop really does wonders. She looks all sorts of mean now. Can’t wait to order my 750s for the rear. Should make it just about perfect

    I've never been involved in a chop and I have a question. In the early cars like your "A", do you splice the wood framing back together some how or what?
