My friend Greg is giving his 34 5w coupe a major rebuild. He built it from scratch and drove it for several years as a channeled, unchopped driver. So Cal guys may remember it by it's trunk lid consisting of inner skin only. His new plan is for 60's drag style with set back Chevy, radiator in the back with Moon tank and lexan filled grill shell. The all new chassis is from Duane at Kiwi Konnection in Bakersfield. He has 4 hole magnesium Halibrands for the rear. A radical chop was needed so guess what we are doing this weekend. Here are the pictures from Saturday We spent many hours messing with the doors to make them fit in the holes and getting the swages to line up. We cut the tops off and tacked the doors in the holes. Next we added bracing inside the body so nothing could move once the butchery begins......... A 5 1/5" chop was chosen so next came some careful studying of where to cut, then some masking tape lines and careful measuring followed. The area between the tape was getting removed. I have seen many methods to lay out a chop (dykem, spray paint etc) but tape always works quick and simple, flexible and accurate for me.
