s10 roof question

I am thinking of doing something along the lines of the black truck , different bed treatment and grille area , However the question i have I can do what is called a stock glass chop of 2" which means drop rear window down lower in the cab ,lean windshield back , and reshape door frames! My other thought was to reshape the rear of the roof slightly to over hang the rear window like on the 60-66 fullsize chevy trucks , (thinking it might make roof look a little lower without chopping) Let me hear your opinion

Well... My opinion is... Don't waste your time doing that to a s10... Use the truck for a truck,,, Buy a cool car and chop it up.... Remember your leaving yourself wide open here.... You might not like some of the answers your asking for...That only my opinion...

Lowering the rear glass looks like it wouldn't be a big deal. The winsheild would be the hard part doesn't look like there's room to tilt the post that far. I would look at droping the glass into the fire wall and building a cowl cover to the glass with opening for wipers. A lot of work unless your in love with your s-10 or just don't have a life.
