01-15-2006 01:53 PM Do It Yourself Roof Chop Example
And for the do it yourself roof choppers. Here is part of the road map. You can see why it is a good idea to have another roof for pieces. I am learning this myself as it happens.

This corner picture is actually the most difficult part of the roof chop. Spreading these back posts.

01-15-2006 01:51 PM Roof Chop Continued
Not as much progress as I had hoped for this week but the top is free standing now. Some fill in and detail work to do and then get the rear end set up.

Just a quick update. Took some pics from a ways back to allow background objects to give it some scale. It sets real tall on the suspension gutted.

Some of the tooling used to narrow a rear end. Bushings installed where bearings are normally. A straight ground bar slips through all the bushings to square everything up for welding.
