    To chop or not to chop, that is the question?


    Just throwing out this question to you guys, been thinking hard on this one and can't make my mind up! It's a small car and the proportions are quite nice as it is, but would it look better with a lower lid? appreciate any feedback.

    I pondered around that question with my project.....went with a chop and convert to a coupe while I was at it... Think i'd chop 2" off it and probably put the fenders back......but, what do I know

    Looks great as is ,if I were to chop it I'd make it subtle. Maybe just a couple of inches to reduce window area compared to body.

    why would you even bother start to customise a car to meet other peoples ideals? if you want to build this so that it pleases a lot of people rather than yourself then paint it gaudy red, yellow, have the wheels on all wonky,make the doors fall off and bubbles come out of the exhaust dress like a clown and you've got it cracked other than that just get on with it and do it your way, if you build a custom ride and people like it then thats a bonus but true customs are your interpretation of a theme or how you want your ride to look, well thats my take on it, go with your heart then it will be your car and you will be happy with it and you will be happy when you know its finished, (if its actually possible to finish a custom car)

    I kind of agree with Moggyroo.
    But................

    Id chop the hell out of it. About 6 inches!
    If its low n black n shiny n sparkley n loud n spitting fire....... It's probably mine.
