    That looks awesome, but I bet a chop that heavy will be a PITA in certain situations. Nevertheless... RAD.

    I was thinking I need to add the pictures I have of the chop before I forget what the pictures are of.

    So let's get started. This is what it looked like the night I drove it over to Loudpedal's house.

    [​IMG]

    All striped down getting the plan of atack together.

    [​IMG]

    As I have told before, this car spent some time on it's roof and the body was pushed in on passenger side, it has some damage that needs to be repaired on the 1/4's. Also the doors on this car looked like a bag of walnuts! So the first thing was to get passenger side and the doors fitting before we cut anything.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    We cut the skins off the doors so Kris could get after them!
    [​IMG]

    Kris had me put together this handheld planishing hammer to work out some of the bad dents.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Kris got the doors metal finished so they will only need little filler.

    [​IMG]

    Skins back on!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Working some of the dents out of the roof.

    [​IMG]

    Now it's time to lay out the chop then hack the shit out of it!

    More to come. It dinner time!

    This is what it looked like with about 6" out.

    [​IMG]

    I just wasn't "feeling" it. The rear window didn't look right?

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    We wanted to lay the A pillars back so Kris took the cut off wheel to the cowl.

    We put the roof on the bench to work on the windshield opening.

    [​IMG]

    At first we went with a 5" windshield.

    Just found out that you can only post 20 pictures at a time. Ha ha! Anyway back to it.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Just wasent "feeling" it.

    [​IMG]

    So we played around with adding to the B pillar to get the look we were looking for.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Kris and I both thought it needed one more out of the windshield. So back off with the top.

    [​IMG]

    One more inch.

    [​IMG]

    Yep! That's it!

    That looks like a mean chop - fantastic. Looking forward to seeing how it turns out. Will you change the crown of the roof?
    Edit: Your last post answered the question. Looks excellent!

    Time to start welding it back together. This is the A pillar fit.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    I was talking with Milkweed on the phone the other night and hetold me he had a "real" hand held planishing hammer that we could use if I wanted to drive out and get it (the frame I built wouldn't allow us to get a good bite on the cowl area. So here is the Thor Fender-Hammer he had!

    [​IMG]

    Welded up. Ready for Thor to smash the welds!

    Not that we don't have enough to do before we go to Viva. I have been working on a pattern for a water heated carb spacer that Kris will cast up before we head out.

    Sorry dude,
    I can appreciate the workmanship and I love a chopped '34 as much as anyone but, IMHO, you just ruined this car.
    Was one of my all-time favorites. Now it is just another over-chopped, impractical wanna be.

    Ya, it's been on the salt - which is more than I can say...
    But the car has no history and isn't going to set any records, so why make it impractical to drive.

    This is coming from a guy with a Deuce that is channeled 10 inches, chopped 4.5 inches and has the firewall set back 8.5 inches. I Would never do that to a car, but I wouldn't undo it either.

    Every owner of an unchopped '34, myself included, are thanking you right now. For now ours are just that much more valuable.
