    One of my favorite chops! I'm tired of seeing overly chopped cars with no style. Yours, Royal Shifter's and Rob Radcliffs are perfect!

    How much did you end up cutting? Was it 3" and 4"?

    looks very good - so, more details on paint needed: what primer, sealer, paint brand, etc? did you use?

    I am not a paint guy, I just the body work and prepped it, so not sure on the brands... I just ask my paint guy what to buy and I bought it.

    Thanks!

    Scallop ideas. Im not sure if I.like these on hood. The fender scallops stay. Either these on hood or a spear of cream around the stainless hood trim. Same down center of roof. Thoughts? Will do simular of fenders on rear quarters around tail lights.

    The hood seems to need a little something "more". I think the weight (thickness?) of the fender scallops requires more balance by widening the hood scallops... or maybe an additional shorter spear in the middle of each of the two hood scallops? Tough call.

    That's a good idea. I'm thinking on the hood shorten the outer ones to maybe about 1/4 the length and leave centers the same?
