    What a great way to start a hot rod project! Start with a restored car! Going to be a kick ass build.

    Anyone can restore a car. It takes real men to cut them up. Looks Great Fellas. Looks like a nice healthy cut too. Keep up the good work!

    So a little back story on this car. I bought this car a few years ago. It was basically a decent restoration. Since I stripped the fenders and sold them, put a lowering spring in the rear. Did my own reverse eye drop based loudpedal's thread. And have drove the piss out of it, even, over-revved it and took out a con-rod and rebuilt it.
    This car will eventually get a v-8 banjo and a flat head! Here is another before pic. ImageUploadedByH.A.M.B.1389967445.437991.jpg

    I love a chopped Model A coupe, but I don't know if I could cut a restored car like that. I cut my tudor to create a pickup and still feel bad. Most of what I removed had a good dose of Ontario so it was not a great loss.
     
  13. Man! when my son, son-in-law and myself cut the top on my tudor, we were afraid we would mess it up. and mine was a rusty junker.
