hmmmm, i don't know if i agree with having to chop the top...i think the tall top makes it more oldschool, old rods are pretty big, it think it fits. When i think of lead sled i think of like 50's gangsters and stuff...

While I agree it is not required to chop the me this is a led sled.....

and the getting the long rear end helps with the proportions too. That is part of the reason I am looking to shorten the roofline of my Type 3 Lead Sled.

I have even started thinking about moving the windshield and cowl forward to shorten the hood and make the proportions better. Kind of like this.
