    A roof chop is a lot of work to do and get looking right, but then to do all 4 doors as good as that looks is just superb. How many hours to get it to the stage in the last photo do you reckon? Great work

    Always loved the shape of the ammo and with a severe roof chop it looks very agresive, coolJeff

    Well thanks. harris66/lee yeah the workshop is good, but a lot of agro from the council!! but thats a different story.

    Paddy, to get the doors to look like they fit isnt to bad, getting them to fit spot on is another thing altogether, and as issigone said on a moredoor, know I know why they call em a moredoor. Ive only got a couple more to do,

    well heres an update. one side roof and doors done enough to wanna get on with the other side. Also pulled the springs to get an idea on how slammed shes ganna be. i like the sound of air at the mo.



    Just got to get the other side finished and then need to look at side glass. I want to try and put onepiece windows in, we will see.
    Matt

    Well its been a while. I think it was 3.5" out of b post cant really remember. Well Ive got round to fitting new inner wings, cut out the trans tunnel and baulkhead to make way for a rv8 and type 9 ford box. Frenched headlights made front all one peice. Got some templates made to cut side glass. Decked the tailgate and smoothed door handles. going to try and get one side prepped by end of july. Heres a couple of pics of how it looks. Cheers Matt




    Everything is an interference fit. I interfere with it till it fits!!
