Bill you correct that one is going to be a big task. LOL Get some masking tape and try to lay it out first to see what you can do.I have also taken pix of the car and printed them on the printer and cut the pix just to see what wont fit and were things line up. I think you biggest challeng is in the rear window trunk area. I have seen guys cut and move the trunk area ahead but man its a lot of work.Try to keep the windsheild straight up is another bigg deal.You will see on a car that was not thought out well a windsheild that is layed back to far. If i were you i would also look for another (maybe really rotten)47 for roof parts.Its easer to mate 2 roofs than to piece the roof together with filler parts.(cause when you chop those the roof get bigger). I have also seen guys cut the top of the roof out of those cars around the rain gutter than cut the windows and fab up strip to make the roof bigger around the edges. Sorry this is so long but there are so many ways to do a chop.
