Chopped the top on the 47 ratrod

Well i have thought about it for a while now, but wasn't sure if it would look good. So today, i went ahead and measured for a 4 inch chop. Taped the lines, braced the inside with rebar and used a sawzall and cut......here are the pic's:

Re: Chopped the top on the 47 ratrod

The truck is shaping up very fast Doug!

I don't see or hear any more hesitation about it. Every time I get on there is a new thread about it and you are modding the hell out of it! I think it is going to be one awesome truck when you decide to take a break from working on it and take the time to do a little cruising in it. Congrats!

Re: Chopped the top on the 47 ratrod

Thanks all, i appreciate the positive comments. And yea, it was scary to chop the top but i think after all the metal being removed, it is looking pretty schweet. Brian, that is an awesome idea for a name for my project. I think that may be a go.
