chopping a slant back

I have 2 '51 Chevy slant backs, one for chopping and one for a donor. Has anyone done this before? Also, going to pancake the hood, any tips?

You mean Fleetlines. I'v got a '51 Fleetline. I'v seen them chopped, and I know it is a very difficult chop, personally I think they look screwey chopped, but on complicated chops, a lot of people load a side view of the vehicle into photoshop and start cutting and fitting the picture until it looks the way you want it, doing it on the computer will give you an idea of what you have to do. you shouldn't need a donor unless you screw up.
