    Great. Look forward to seeing them. Your car should have the exact look that you want. If we all wanted them to look the same, we'd be restorers instead of hot rodders.

    Here's mine, chopped 2 1/2 inch which I think just enough to make it look in proportion.

    Hey man, I own several 32's. One in Rodder's Journal, One in Rod Action Magazine, A 32 roadster, my friend drove from Cali in '56, a 32 3W that I bought 41 years ago from the famous Dave Rehor, my 32 5W I bought in 1976 still drive with mechanical brakes. Take it from an old ford guy, you can't improve on Henry's work. Don't chop it! When you get my age, you will regret it. That car of yours is better than a savings account. The Ardun car in the classifieds is mine. Love your car. Big Jim

    yes Bigbangtheory, I thought about that before the chop. I usually install bench seats from a mini van.

    Hi Bigbangtheory, I really haven't decided yet on the paint color yet. I like the dark burgundy coupe that Hotdoggin DaddyO was showing.

    My 3 inch chopped Kilborn body, opening windshield , cowl vent and UPAC gutters. Plan on using a stock firewall to finish the illusion. Not trying to fool anybody but have to make myself happy with the end result 32 Coupe gutters 10 2016 b rs.jpg .

  29. I could live with that firewall I think. What brand is the body?

    Neat project.
