NIIICE, glassguy. Even though it ain't hardtopped, I'm glad it is still getting the canted B pillars... keep em coming girls...
its been another wed nite.. heres the progress..did everyone forget about this post
I did not forget about thispost, lots of cool car pictures, and especially great how-to pictures on doing the chops on different cars. Nice work by all and thanks for sharing.
That chop job is looking great Glassguy!! Thanks for posting more photos. Keep those photos coming!!!
i want to marry that chop the b-pillar is kanted perfectly the roof line flows almost into a fastback style which i think is the only cool way to chop a business coupe definitely keep those pics coming
I think some of may have seen this a while back, but here are some different photos. It's a 1/25 scale, not a 1:1, that was inspired by Russ Conway's copper colored shoebox.
Hopefully one day I'll be hacking metal instead of plastic.

Here's one I'm doing for mike shea,will be at paso painted this year.
Is that the same car with the down low 54 Merc lights with a new roof?
well thought i"d add a pic of mine for gods sake...
from the back...
oo mack yes it is ... the hood blew open and caved the old poorly chopped roof in so we decided it was a good time to fix it and make it all better. i'm doing the garnish moldings now and then it will get new rockers,round the door corners and on to the front end. I'm going to fix the talilights also, they are just lacking something.
HOLY shit, glassguy. Very nice flow! Very nice trunk to roof balance when looking at the rear window as well. Did you throw a little extra angle into those B pillars? Or is that just where they ended up with the chop?
I can't get over that 1/25th scale grren shoebox. Unfucking believable.
let's keep the pics coming, ladies...
What a cool friggen post!
Cool customs, great chop technique info and an unbelievably real looking model.

This car was originally chopped by my good friend, Eric Erickson from Westminster, CA. He sold it unfinished and it needed a lot of bodywork, but it had a bitchin' paintjob with a gold basecoat and lime panels that faded into the gols. I have a few pics of the former paint job, and I'll see if I can get 'em up...
Kinda kool interior pic. Actually, I am just testing out my new abilities with picture posting...I think I finally fingered it out...
Can anybody teach me how topost more than one pipcture per post????
