Chopping the top on a hot rod is one of the most bad ass steps to take in making your ride truly custom. And it should be, because it is a serious commitment and requires serious skill to do it right and make it look like it should have come that way. With that said, I can’t wait to get myself a 1930s or 1940s hot rod so I can chop the top. I don’t know why, but in the last couple of years I’ve been inspired to do a chop more and more. We’ll just have to see.
In this episode, I spent time over the holidays helping my Dad chop the top on his 1934 Chevrolet Truck. We took 4 inches off the top and got it mostly put back together before vacation was over and I had to head home. Check out this old Chevy and follow along as my Dad, my brother, and I make building a hot rod a family affair. And a special shout-out to Rat Rod Bob! He has a cool channel that everyone that watches this should go see. @Rat Rod Bob Builds
