"How We Chop 1933-34 Ford Coupe Tops"

We are going to show you how to perform a “Tapered Street” chop. We will be removing 3” at the windshield tapering to 2 1/16” at the rear window. We will be taking the taper cut out of the top half, not the body half of the top. This way the length of the cut will be longer making it possible not to add pie cuts to remove excess material in the rear section of the top. Lastly, we plan on eliminating the top door hinge for two reasons. First off it is a cleaner look and secondly it’s easier.
