    Interesting that you left the rear window intact.

    Was that "friend" Stan Beringhele from Culver City? If so I watched him chop, lead, paint and assemble one of the best 32 3W. Coupes ever when starting with a body 1000 times rougher than the one posted here. He was definitely "Old World" rest his soul.

    Flop,
    Your metal working skills are incredible!!!!!!! Just fascinating to be able to see the amount of patience time and skill along with the method of execution. You are a truly skilled craftsman!!!!

    Kevin, Don't want to hijack Flop's posting, but I'm very impressed with his work. I bought my 3W body from Stan Beringhele in '82 at the Pomona swap. He had decided to part out his Coupe and I got lucky and ended up with the body. My 3W was wrecked in March '99 returning from the drags in Bakersfield and Stan repaired the damage and chopped the top. Not only was he a old world master but a great friend. He, me and a welder friend chopped it in about 6 hours plus another week to finish all the details. He's missed by many of us in So Cal. Flop seems to have mad skills and I'm looking forward to the completion of his chop.

    It will be a stretch. The A-pillar will retain it's current "tilt".

    "Measure twice, cut once." No welding wood. I like the idea of the dowels.
     
  14. Doweling is a great touch....I like that little extra reinforcement and alinement......Now I need more pop corn.......keep this show rolling please....
     
  15. Just wait till you see where the cuts in the panels meet each other. I'm sure it's coming soon.

    This car will need a custom tag that's just says, "CLEAN"

    Plus clear paint.

    Glad to see your leaving the A pillars the same angle, and stretching the roof in the center. Outstanding work, thank you for sharing.

    Personally, I like them leaned back, but if we all liked the same thing, hot rodding would be pretty boring. ;)

    To me, that treatment looks best on the 33-34 Fords. No right or wrong though...
