    I know there are a ton of pics showing a shoebox getting a hair cut, but I wanted to show mine. After hours and hours of planning I finally got it cut off! Still a ton of work to go!

    I think it worked out pretty well for my first time!

    Thanks guys, The first cut was a little unnerving! I've had it on the road for two years now and knew it had to be chopped. I'll keep posting progress pics.

    Looks real good man. A lot of chops on thes have real strange proportions. I think it may be because they arent that big of a car. but it looks like you got it laid out real nice man. Nice Work :D

    I started grinding the paint off of all the areas that are going to need welded together. I really want to grind off those ugly seams on my rear fenders! Has anyone done this, what am I getting my self into? I already have plenty of work to do before spring, but damn they look like crap!

    Finnrodder - 4-1/2" out of the A pillar

    After we got them wrestled where they needed to be, I wasn't going to let them move, clamps are my friend!
