how i spent the last week: sunday the 15th, i went to do some bodywork on my car, finish the fenders, rocker panels and rear wheel openings, etc. to get ready for this weeks trip to salina for the leadsled spectacular. i look at the car for ten minutes, then tell myself, it's the Leadsled spectacular, not the mild custom spectacular! gotta chop that muthafucker! an hour later the glass was stripped and the top was down about 4". by the end of the day i had it all tacked together, first pics of the chop would have been monday or tuesday. here it is sunday morning: tacked into place: rolled outside for the first time, much better! rear tulip panel tacked into place. i did something a bit different here, i wanted to use stock stainless beltline trim, but not lay the rear window down. the way things lined up, the decklid was about an inch higher than the beltline at the window, no good. i cut the body next to the trunk lip all the way back to the taillights, and dropped it down an inch. it now flows nicely, now the decklid is parallel to the tops of the rear quarter panels. the last of these pics were taken saturday, no new pics, but all the filler pieces are in, unfortunately i couldn't get new glass here on such short notice, so i'm running lexan windows for the time being. ratrodarriffic! you may notice a piece of scrap lexan i c-clamped into place for a few days, i just HAD to drive it while working on it!
