  • Another 50 chev chop

    Well the story goes I got me a free 2 door chev so played with the idea of sectioning it and chopping.

              Say , I remember these cars. but I forgot they came with that V8. hell the engine alone was worth the free .... before the flaming I was kidding about the V8 thing
              Keep the rubber burning and the flames shooting out of your headers ............

                  how hard was the sectioning to do? was thinking of taking out 2-3 inches out of my truck. might be a little low with a 7.5 inch chop. will need to see how the final headroom is before see if i can do it. nice job.. can't wait itl it is done.

                            Well I got the other door in place and most of the welding done on it. This door fits much better than the drivers guess that's to be expected when you cut a car up a couple times lol
