So I picked up this '49 Chevy last week because it was a good deal. Don't really need another project right now since the "A" still needs interior and some fine tuning to be finished. That being said (and alot of searching pictures later) I think I want to chop it. I seen some pretty cool customs made from these cars and wouldn't mind taking a crack at it. But there are some problems. 1. never chopped a anything before 2. from the posts I've studied seems like alot of work. 3. is the chop worth all the extra time. I do have some metal working skills, just have never tried a chop. I did all the work on my A but the top was already chopped when I bought it. I channeled it, made my own floors, rear inner fenders and all the body work and paint. I just don't want to screw up a perfectly good car. So what do ya think chop or not?
