Achieve your goal with minimum fuss and maximum results! Few modifications change the appearance of a vehicle as much as a well executed top chop. In this information-packed guide, Larry O'Toole shows you how to prepare, mark out and accomplish a top chop on a range of vehicles, from early hot rod coupes to classic American Chevys, and even a Falcon sedan delivery from the sixties. Learn how and where to measure for the chop, how to build an internal frame for the vehicle so that everything stays in alignment while the roof is off, and how to modify the windshield glass to suit the new roofline. Hundreds of step-by-step photos lay out every step of the process.
