CHOP mE TOO please!

I just saw the xa thread where the roof has been slightly chopped. It looks brilliant so could someone (cough..big_pete..cough) do something similar to mine. Just a slight chop, nothing too radical.







And if you could put Ford T3 wheels on it would be great. Or any other 5 spoke wheel. Maybe the ones like on the xa. They looked sweet.

Anything else you want to do go for it!

thanks.

Re: CHOP mE TOO please!

Mate what can I say......incredible! Thanks big_pete! I first saw them in the other jap vs. aussie motors thread.

I got a big suprise, then I realised what was going on and it was impossible to supress a smile. Top points for the unveiling.

The chop is perfect. So is the dumping. No handles smooths it out nicely. I like how you even smoothed out the damage on the front. Nice plate as well.

I probably like the second one the best on account of the massive fats up the back. But then again the in motion style, and the colour, of the first pic is sweet too!

Out of interest how long did they both take you?

thanks again.

Re: CHOP mE TOO please!

Yeah, that would be great. You have already done more than enough. But if you dont mind.....

Maybe a light royal blue colour. Like the colour in the "Quick reply" section at the bottom of this page you are reading right now.

And maybe a green like the "cgmfly rb30" torana, if you know it. I think its called candy apple green. Maybe a bright kermit green like the "ezy-10 mazda 1300 rotary" as well.

And one more, I hope I havent asked too much, a slightly maroony brown. Similar to stock but with a bit of maroon in the brown. This is the one I really would like to see, as it will be the cheapest to paint. Maybe a few slight variations on this colour. That would be fantastic.

Any other colour you recon would be cool, go for it!

Do as much or as little as you want. And take your time. There is no hurry. Like I said you have already done enough.

thanks again big_pete.
