    Nice Job....

    Are you going to cover the inner panels with any material or leave them metal?

    I like 5 to 6 inch chop. Takes the phone booth look away. 5 Inch just looks right. Most will say the chop / channel shouldn't be more that 8" combined. I chopped my 31 coupe 5" and channeled 3-1/2". I will have to sit low to clear the overhead

    a 5" chop lets us remove the top hinge, cut off the top 5", and not have to deal with the tapered A pillars...

    How high are the windshield frame and door window frames? I’m trying to figure out what to do with my windshield frame since my doors are pretty heavy chopped.
