I'd go for the 3 inch chop. Nice coupe whether you chop it or not.
i will be on the phone tomorrow morn with 5wbomber as i measure my coupe
i vote for no chop...
to late he's cutting tomorrow
Just give us the dimmension of the window!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Top to bottom
Didnt see a 5 to 6 so I picked 4 .
4" ... 4.5" i think would look best
I voted for 4"
I am partial to the 4.5" chop. Here's mine...
If you are 6' 3" I would find one that is chopped and see how you fit in it. I'm 5' 7.5" with a 3" chop on my '31 so I strongly suggest you find one to set in before any cutting.
the "look" is the key element, after the chop then seat base mods and other mods can be done so you fit. having a chopped car has its drawbacks, but its a sacrifice you make for the "look". i am 6' and "just " fit in my coupe ,but i find at times visability in certain situations is limited. one learns to "adjust" though.
I too will be faced with to chop or not.
I kind of like it un-cut
maybe it's just me, but I think all of the images here could be raised just an inch or two in the rear. I'd have to adjust the stance and then I think the car would tell me to chop her about 4".
If you're gonna go, go BIG.
i'm 6'2 and I fit in it pretty good..my seats are low and my floor is channeled
but i havn't drivin it yet so will see..so it shouldn't be that bad for you..
That Coupe looks ready to Rumble!
Nice. 4.5" chop by the way
I say leave it as it is and I really like chopped tops. I did vote for the 4" but..............
6ft3in here, with a basically stock but a lil shorter front seat and a headliner. Fit's just right!! Sorry I don't have a photobucket pic of my car to insert, just the avatar..... Tim
If your chopping for an attitude...then chop 4"-6"....I'd go 6" nice coop!
Hell Ya! That is the way to do it. 5-6 inches.
I would go with 5.
i think mine is a tad over 4" maybe 4.25"
cruzr's car is chopped 5" im pretty sure, its definitely chopped more than mine.
im 6'2 ish and i fit snugly but you have to remember my car is channeled too.
oh yea and i vote for at least 4" but no more than 5"
here, here... I like it the way it sits....
Looks good as it is . I vote, No chop!!!!
Here's my EX...similar to cruzr's.....I chopped it with one thing in mind.....chop it just enough to lose the straight vertical line at the rear of the quarter window...just around five inches
you know what I have to say.
if you gonna give her, give her good.
start with 4 you can always go more.
I'd go min. 4" maybe even 4.5" but..... it also looks fine as is.
I hate posts like this !!! I have to much work but I want my 5 window hammered !!!!!
Ummm...can we vote NO chop???
sorry i too am with Fat Hack..i think it looks good the way it is..or maybe just maybe 2" or 2 1/2 with a slight rake?
shit i dont know its your car..chop the dam thing completely off wgaf
Id say no chop...it looks cool "as is"...but...if you must cut it...id do 4"
My cohort chopped the top on a 31 coupe about 3 3/8, side windows do not go oblong. Head Room and the back window looks proportional to it's length. work in progress.
