Acquired a 53 chevy Bel Air 2 dr hardtop, need a couple quarters replaced, tailpan, a little piece of the trunk lip. Worst repair it needs is the area above the drip rail on both sides about half the length of the top, Mouses got inside and made the headliner their abode. Moisture retained by all the cotton out of the front seat has caused substantial rust to develop about 2 " above the drip rail. Which brings up one of my favorite things to do. Possibility of chopping it. So, I tried searching the internet as to suggested methods and things to watch out for, to absolutely no avail. there ain't nuttin out dere! I have cut well over 200 different cars over the years, but never did one of these. I know there are as many ways to do it as there are finished projects. but listening and watching is how you learn. Searching HAMB got me no where either. HELP ! ...are there ANY threads here that I have missed in my search, dealing specifically with chopping the 53-54 Hardtop?
