Thanks Ok I will get some up
I got a little time after work to do some chop prep got some of that old at 82 year old paint off
I'd wait on the chop till you have the floors done. Just makes it easier having more room to work in there.
with ur planned chop and channel....u probably won't be able to put people in the back seat.
I have a lot of short firends
What are you trying to say Brad?
It's just for you Carl
Ok so i gotoff at 5 today came home and hit it hard taped it up
I'll be watching this build as I'm working on a A coupe that will be channeled.
Your 4 door is cool, keep us posted.
Ok well its all cut out
Man its nice to have good firends Carl,Deb and Josh stoped by and helped me lower down the top Thanks guys
That thing is moving way to fast. You need to slow down. You will be done before I finish my rod.
hey man you know its not legal to drink and pretend drive.
He's in the back seat
Lookin real good!! Keep those updates comin!
Looking good mate, keep em coming.
Hay yall I hope everyone is doing good I got A little of it the top put back together tonite it's going to take a day or two
The top of the cowl looks great peaking over the radiator like that!!
The chop turned out great man. Just right.
Thanks it will look better when it is over the frame a little
I have a Tudor build going as well. Yours looks great. Nice progress.
Keep the pics coming!
I would like some input on what everyone thinks about channeling the body over the frame leave on top 1" 1.5" 2" 3" or 4" Chanel
Hey Brad - Study the Model A Sedans in this page -
I think the best looking ones are the ones you can see the frame with the chop. As you know, to me - channeled at really looks goofy - The porportions get funny because they are longer than they are tall. Short and stocky looks tough. To me - that car is really going to look funny if it is super long with 4 doors and channeled lower and chopped. Of course opinions are like you know what. Good luck dude.
All the ones on there are channeled to the ground that is not what I'm after I will do some more research tonite and see if I can find one with a 1.5 or 2" channel and post a pic of it
Here is the one I like on an A frame. You're right the rest of them are channeled down way too much.
Any is way too much to me.
I got to do a little to her tonite but I had a paying get dropped off and he needs it in the am witch is great extra money is good helps me get closer to a new 4" drop front axle
Right on - may see ya tonight.
X 2! Dig that pic
