I should have paid more attention in Geometry class. When you chop the top EVERYTHING changes. The door tops get longer, the door jambs have to be widened to align back up and the list goes on. A full day on the drivers door and I got the door jamb reinstalled and started fitting the door. Almost done with the drivers door......this is going to be a LONG project!!!!

SLOWLY.......tweaking the door. Added the top door corner back in and you can see how I had to split the piece to widen it to fit (now to fill it back in with new metal but wanted to keep the door angle the same). Also had to work around the window track inside the door. So many angle and pieces change when doing a chop. The finish work to line it all back up is driving me crazy!!!

Looking good, you definitely have to have a lot of patience to be working on the 2 chops you have. Are you keeping track of how many hours it takes to build these vans. Keep up the great work.

The other isn't a chop but has tons of body mods (tilt front end, gullwing doors, etc). I have no idea the hours in it but it is well over 1,000 and I am just starting the chop and already realizing it is going to be a LONG process as there is so much tweaking and fitting.
