Hey Everybody. I'm finally going to get around to "Choppin' & Droppin'" my 50' Shoebox Ford. I have some BIG goals and plenty of time to achieve them! This is, however, my first project so I'm going to need some help. This is where YOU come in: Below (in red) I will post my ideas, and how I plan on doing them. Read the headings below, and if you have had ANY experience in these fields, please share any hints and tips that you may have (i.e. Problems I may come across, and good places to order the parts from). Here we go: Chopping The Top I'm thinking either a 4" or 5" chop. I have the basic Idea of how to go about doing this, and have read just about every article The H.A.M.B. has to offer on the subject. I need to know: 1.) Any of the unique problems that may come about, and how you solved/fixed them. 2.) Where I can get a hold of the new glass I will need in the future of this build. Frenching Headlights & Tail Lights For the headlights, I plan on doing them the traditional "52-54 Merc bezel, move-the-assembly-to-the-back" way. I've read most of the threads on this subject, and it seems pretty starightforward. I only need to know how any of you out there have mounted the headlight into the back of the "mounting area". I am absoloutely CLUELESS on how to french the tail lights. Any help would be great. Baggin' TheRear Yep. Only the rear. I want it to drag ass like a dog that has worms. (This is where you refer your favorite manufacturers, sellers, and systems.) I plan on using a Triangulated 4-link setup, and running 3/8" lines. Another problem brings itself to light, though: What compressor package should I purchase? I just want to keep it Plain, Simple, and most importantly CHEAP! No fancy controllers or anything. I also need to know a little about tower notching. I want it to lay frame, so what would be the proper dimensions of the notch to achive the desired effect? In case you are curious as to what the rest of my ideas are: I plan on re-routing the "3-on-the-tree" to "3-on-the-floor," sewing up an interior, thorwing on some spun aluminum "racing hubcaps," and hopefully getting it into some sort of paint. Once I get started, I will make a build thread and add the link to this thread. Pics of the car currently will go up upon request. Thanks for reading!
