ok, so ive owned this car for about a year now and have been staring at it on how i want to cut it. wanted to keep the original backglass and lay it down. i just dont care for the hump that is created on the catwalk when leaned with out doing something to the trunk. i am in the middle of trying to get my own shop going so what better way to advertise what you can do then to chop your own car. yes, i know its a four door, thats what i wanted. i was the bodyman at Bear Metal Kustoms on here for 4 years. so im not new to this type of stuff. i am the one that chopped his 1950 oldsmobile. so, here we go. so first i stripped out everything from the doors and windshield. i left the backglass in because i wanted to get the correct flow with the glass and the roof line. next, i cut out the detail line in the sailpanel and a section out of the top of the quarter to allow for movement. next everything got braced and the cutting began. i first cut the roof skin from the top of the backglass. i went 3" above to allow me to have some metal to work with when rejoining them. then cut the back half of the car off. i am getting a lot of the backglass lean from moving the trunk. once that was off, i cut out the top of the back seat frame from the package tray and removed it from the car. i will be putting it back in later on. now its time to remove the roof. i tried using a portaband, but the blade kept popping off. so saw-zall came out.
