This 37 Chevy came to us as a stripped parts car. The roof was heavily damaged from a tree falling on it but considering what we planned to do, it was a perfect start. This is to be a fenderless 3 window coupe when finished.
To start we needed to align the body so the doors fit and brace the car so it cannot move during construction.
The front half of the roof is were the majority of the damage was so we planned a cut and removed the part we were to save.
Now the damaged part of the roof was removed at the A pillar.
With the donar roof in place we decided on a angle chop of 3 inches in the front and 1 1/2 inches in the rear.
Its going to be BAD ASS.
The rear tail pan and floors needed to be completely replaced.
The chop is complet and the quarter windows are filled. Just need to finish the doors.
The lower cowl patches and the new recessed fire wall are in place.
The new EMS tail pan is installed.
This thing is starting to look good!
With the body blasted it was time to do some custom work to the rear of the car.
Since we are going to reshape the rear wheel well opening we cut out the oringinal wheel well and rear floor section.
The body line stops just past center on the stock body panel and we want it to extend all the way back.
The bottom edge is radiused and rolled under.
Now the body line has been extended back and finished.
