    ok now for the chop theres alot of these cars around so i wanted to do somethin differant with the chop.
    same reason i dont have a grill i want this car to be differant than the ones running around sides i dont know what i want ?
    any ways i decided on cutn 5'' out of the a pillers
    6 1/2'' out off the c pillers
    and hard toppen the bitch.with no side glass im gona cap off the doors
    the courts still out on the wing windows thow
    any ways we took out the glass,
    cut out the front seat (ran out off time first run she made to paso didnt have the seat brakets so we welded it in:D)
    then webraced her up
    notice the seat springs cant beleave i drove around for the first year like that
