if you can do it or find some one to chop top off make lighter one out of fiber glass and you can take it off leave it in the garage or take it out in the rain

I have a choped 41 ford. Me and my father have been building it for over 2 years now and it still isnt half way complete. Basicly there is NO kits to chop tops. Basicly get a jig saw and start cuting..... then weld it back to gether......




If i knew how mutch of a pain this would be, i would of bought a convertable and built a cavis top to make it look like it was choped.... That or totaly build a different car.........

are you talking about making a convertable or chopping the top, because they are two very different things. a chop top is when you lower the roof line, not cutting off the roof, and it is alot more work than just simply cutting off the roof to make a convertable. from what it sounds like i think you are talking about a removable hard top, like on a MG or a little roadster

and btw rat rodder, rat rods are just bad ass, keep up the good work

a light wieght frame with canvas cover would look nice when on the car. you could make it look like a true conv. top without the hassle of makin the thing fold up, just take off frame and all


i dunno just throwin out ideas

how many times are we gonna have this topic. I love it. I think you better take that to somebody to do. And i think a 66 Impala vert rack fits perfectly. ;)
