    Still one of my favorite threads on here. This is what it’s all about, not some dumb shit to take up space and score more points. “ What do you use to clean your wheels?” ( clean my wheels? Hit 6 grand and pop the clutch!

    My 7 year old asked to see different chops, while hanging out in the shop. This thread was a treat. Thanks, fellas.

    Here's mine at 4".

    4" out of the top but 3" out of the rear window.

    The Chrisman coupe and Lucky Burton's coupe have great looking chops; not that I would recommend doing something similar.

    This thread is good and bad.
    I am aiming for a 40’s inspired build and know I don’t want a heavy chop. But now I’m confused on what size chop to go with.

    Can anyone tell for certain how much Ryan’s coupe is chopped?

  22. ...........I'm guessing 2", Dean, but what do I know.:)...Study the quarter window on yours and Ryan's. By the way, your "A" is looking great..........Don.
