Good luck.

Exactly, thanks Mike. The body is in super shape so cutting on it is . I'd play with a beater cab first before potentialy trashing a nice body.

Also I want to drive the snot out of this car and I'm not sold on chop top's visability. For a weekend cruiser sure, a semi-daily driver....not so sure.

It was lowered about 4.5", looked good but drove like hell. Its back to stock now and I may lower it 2" but no more.

Its off a bit in the pic because the rears are new stock size tires and the fronts are undersized by 2 sizes. I have to get the other 3 (fronts and spare) mounted but my starter gear shaft just broke so payday before I can drive it over.

I still have to clean up the dash wiring and mount the seats+belts anyways this weekend.
