    Got my 31 back from my buddy's body shop today. He painted my top after I did a 3" chop. Drove it back to my shop in the 20 degree weather with no windshield, and I was grinning all the way..
    Before, during, and after pictures.

    Looks great. I like that its not over chopped. I've been seen to many cars that are over chopped to me.

    Looks like you've done all the subtle modifications to turn it into a great looking hot rod.

    Dang e z i if I had of been paying attention I would have been able to squint and see the acorns twinkling just inside the hood louvres and known it got a v8 too. I will write 20 times "I will pay more attention to hot rods!" I promise! ;)
