Don't wanna rain on your parade of a great idea, but it looks like the passenger side roof line is a bit lower than the driver side. I agree it is a nice idea if you have the time and the guts to do that chop. There is a purple one out there that has a full chop and it looks sic.

its am optical illusion, its been measured several times by 4 diferent people, even by the glass installer. its one 8th lower on the drivers side, a tolerance that we could handle. we measure at several different points on the car. i seen the purple one and is real nice, it was at sema a couple yrs ago.

Up date

Aloha,
Ok, I made the side windows today and installed them.

I'm gonna take them back out later on this week and tint them. the body work finally begins Friday, and we're hoping to be pau with it on sat, then next week it gets painted, the logos will be made and put back on, then I'll put the interior back in, then it'll be ready to go.




:cheers:

Nooby here. Why would anyone chop top? Uniqueness and appearance? I understand if that's the case, I just don't see the benefit / don't understand

it's an awful lot of work

Ok, Braddah Shawn of "Hard knocks customs" is doing the body work for me this morning, he got one side of the roof done, tomorrow the drivers side is next, in the next couple days the doors will be pau. It needs to be all pau by this weekend so it can be painted.

I went to the sign shop this morning to get the logos remade. The big show I have to be at is next sat July 13th, we leaving on Friday. 8 hour drive!

for the body work, he used some 8115, the same stuff that car makers use now days instead of welding , then fiber glass, then a thin layer of Bondo.




Still have to do the final shapeing

So when doing the chop top it looks like you got rid of the rain gutters in the roof...looks cleaner but might be an annoyance when it rains...

Looks great so far, keep the pictures coming!
