    Ya, doing either one by it's self gives a completely different look. You know what you like, build it that way. Nothing is easy about slicing up a car, but well worth it. Hope you are good with welding/fabbing.
     
  4. It all depends on the look you're going for - how much room you need inside the car, what type of seats you plan to use (from a comfort and fit perspective), etc.. Neither one is easy -- just typical fabrication, metal work and body work. I'm not a big fan of heavily channeled cars, but some on an 'A' coupe is nice. From a chop perspective - I don't think I could own an A coupe without 3 - 4 inches out of it! (minimum).

    It is all in the eye of the beholder!

    I would think more chop than channel if you are going to do both.

    Actually: as yet to aquire my 'A' Coupe....someday; hopefully sooner than later...personally I hope to find one with all the fenders attached...would beef the frame and add a 'flatty V8' to the mix.
    The question came about from the numerious threads on the subject; ....I'm just curious !!
