    So you took 1" out of the roof crown, without chopping it. Very cool, love the section.

    Any new progress to this elegant build?

    Question: what was done to the roof? The front window frame was lowered by 1". Was the rear roof skin cut by the sides and then pushed down by an inch to reduce the hight of the top skin?

    Subscribed. Especially since I'm getting ready to do this car's twin. A buddy has been trying to talk me into doing a crown chop. This shows me a lot more of how it would look and how it might be done.

    Not to be dumb, but now that the headlights have been removed, where will you hide them? Sorry if I missed it....

    Hopefully, more info will follow.
    In the mean time, here is a link to a Merc which received a nicely de-crowned roof.
