My mate Shane is building this car for his dad.

Started chopping on Saturday at a friends shop and continued last night.





The custom dash

34 Ford bumpers. Shortened and the ends flipped.

Ready to start letting in a big roof panel...


The chopper monster...





Now it's been "CUT" and the "WELD" has started ... hopefully not long for the "DRIVE".

How much $$ does it take to open a shop like that?

That's a nice shop.

And a nice chop!

Hey Mat here I am,

Thanks every one for the cool responses to the project so far. We took 3 inches out at the B pilliar. Just enough to give it the chop look but most importantly i can still drive her. Im a tall guy so head room is a big issue.

I agree with all you guys the work shop is awesome, makes working easy. So lucky Mike from cbb let me use the shop.

Still A long way to go on this project but with Hot Rod Mat and Mike Giving guidance it should be a shit load of fun, a heap of laughs and finish with an unreal ride. [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/thumbsup.gif[/img]
