Never chopped one before. Done crazy things like section a 1939 Oldsmobile but not this. Wes and I spent some time trying to find good looking chops on these, but they are rare man. Most of them mutilate the rear door to make it work or end up with some odd transition and the owner wanted me to chop this one 4 inches! Armed with my confidence and stupidity Wes and I jumped in with both feet. First up was to remove paint in the areas where we planned on working and to pull the doors off. This car must have been restored in the 80's or so because of the Allen hardware on the door hinges, previous rust repair and gawd awful synthetic enamel paint that comes off like a plastic baggie stuck to your exhaust. Horrible! Once up in the air on stands and leveled out we braced everything we could think that might move on us. Then out come the paper and scissors, and tape measures. Amazing how different this car was side for side. But we formed a plan of attack and let the sawzall buzz!
