    You can use a traffic signal viewer if it's an issue. Actually, looking cool comes way before practicality in a Hot Rod!

    Looks great. I was thinking of going with a 4" chop on my 31, but, I sure like that 5" haircut. How tall are you? I'm 6' 1", how tall are you?

    Im 6'4" and will fit fine if I put the seat on the floor and move it back. Im running a thin seat cushion. My biggest issue is leg room, not head room. No matter how tight it ends up being, I will squeeze my ass in there!

    Good to know, I'm 6'2 and that's one of the major complaints I hear from people.

    I think a lot of the problem is when people channel the car as well as a chop. Im running high boy style with no channel.

    funny, how when we start discussing chopping a rod, the two questions that are asked..."How MUCH of a chop is that..?" and "How TALL are you..? seriously, how many of you guys drive STANDING UP ??? (chuckle) I chopped my sedan 7 1/4" and I'm 5' 10" ...no issues with head room. Ever ride in a Vette? they are VERY short...just sayin'
