Item description for How To Chop Tops (Old Skool Skills) by Timothy Remus...
Chopping a top is an essential part of building a hot rod. The planning, the preparation, the actual cutting, and then the reassembly, each step must be completed correctly or the entire project will be in jeopardy. This book gives the reader six, start-to-finish; top chops that show each step in the process, from paper sketches to the final welding. Readers can use the examples shown in the book to perform their own chop – while avoiding the mistakes that first-time builders often make.
This book contains more than photo sequences, and also includes interviews with professional hot rod builders who help to explain the fine points of cutting and welding. As they explain, careful planning, followed by cautious execution, can reduce the amount of work enormously, and ensure a positive outcome – a very cool hot rod with a chopped top.
