    Nothin like chewing on a garr and grinding metal. Makes everything just right like your finished product Flop.

    Flop , great job on the chop. Too many don't get the quarter window opening correct and it looks bad. You got the quarter window opening perfect.

    The definitive right way to chop an A, looks awesome. In the middle of working on mine and have a question. On the front post alignment do you just slice and dice & bend everything or I've seen some that cut the dash rail to spread them? I'm at that point trying to figure out which way to go. Thanks JJ

    Looks awesome as the rest of your work does. Is that an original vent or a reproduction piece. Or let me guess you made it.

    So how much of that windshield clearing the vent lid was plain luck?

    Flop, Just curious, How long does it take you, start to finish, to complete a chop on the Model A Coupe? You make it look extremely easy, awesome job. CTJ

    Looks awesome. I would love to have one of your insert pieces when you crank out another batch.
    Thanks
