What kind of coupe, I'm a bodytech, depending on the coupe is depending on the advice. early coupe chopping 26-32 is reletively easy, now when you get into the 33-present day stuff its harder because of the curves and etc, need some more info before I can help much.

1960 studebaker, 2 door sedan, (post).
I also have a 1972 camaro, that needs the floorpans including the trunk floorpan replaced. They are rusted completely through. I want to run the camaro in Super Street,but it won't pass tech, because of the floorboards.
The 1960 studebaker I want to run a gas class with a chopped top and a rear wing. Thanks for any info.

I must take this opportunity to thank Hotrodders Bulletin board for the forum they supply for us, (we rodders and builders). I have met 2 new people whom I regard as friends although we haven't known each other very long. They are Halloweenking and Dinger. Both of them have given me some fantastic insight on my latest project.
It just so happens Dinger and I both live in the same town. (Just goes to show what a small world we live in). He came over and looked my car over the other day and gave me some really good ....(and overlooked advice). Both guys strike me as being "downhome" folks as we say back in Arkansas
and are willing to help any one. After all, isn't that what it's all about,..... helping each other
so many of us get so busy and wrapped up in our own world we neglect to recognize there are others who need our time more than we do.
I would like to say to Halloweenking and Dinger, a BIG THANK YOU GUYS. It is a pleasure to know you both. JJFlashesq.

A good place to start is with Tex Smiths book "How To Chop Tops" It gives a do it yourself approach to wacking a roof. A lot of his books are well worth the expense of buying them just for the common sense solutions he gives to every hot rodding problems. I believe he has a web site. :cool:
