    Wish the top was radically chopped more, and more tilt to W.S.

    There's a debate going on elsewhere on the HAMB about whether it is advisable to chop a 1940 Ford 4-door sedan. The cons argue that the lines are destroyed by pinched window posts and a too short windshield.

    I decided to give it the late-forties custom treatment and see what worked. Started by lowering the car with a slight tail-dragger look. Then I lowered the top by sectioning the car from the A-pillar back under the windows and above the chrome trim strip.

    The next pass took an inch or so from the side pillars. Of course, the whole rear slope would have to be reworked, but that was a given in a chopped sedan.

    In order: Stock, Sectioned, and then Chopped.

    I like your take on the 4 door rot 'n kustom. Id like to see your last version with the 3rd pillar canted forward so the rear door windows weren't so square. I think that would add to the sleek look you've got going.

    IMO needs chopped MORE , post tilted more, so top hangs out over W.S. making a visor..
     
  8. OK...Here it is. I didn't lay the windshield back further in the first rendering because the door post would also have to be laid back and I didn't care too much for the shape of the window opening...

    Well, Moose did a fantastic job on my Cab. I am in the process of building the frame for this project. The chop may be a bit of a task to convince the wife for an OK I am working on it. I will start a build thread in the next day or two.
    Thanks again to the “HAMB” for good info.
