I like those. I wonder if they are custom or out of some car?

They don't look bad. Those skirts have some wild contours to them.

Is this what you're thinking for the back glass?

God no. I have seen that car and always wondered why they used that glass. It's a slick car other than the back glass. It doesn't flow. What I was talking about was doing it like the one the club chopped years ago.

It's hard for me to explain myself. I never liked it when someone said this is the right way you chop a top. There are many ways to chop a top. There is no wrong way or right way. The issue is that some tops have to be chopped certain ways. One way on one car may not work right on another car.
Don't get confused with there is no wrong way to chop a car either. There is no wrong way style wise but there is a wrong way with lack of knowledge or poor skills.

If the 54 roof is used it can be a great looking chop. Problem with this one they butchered the top. It can be doctored up. There is no fixing it the right way without replacing the roof. Cheaper and less liked by me is to lay the glass down. Doing this I can cut off the part of the roof on the 54 that is screwed up bad and it will still look good after it's done.

I'm going to cut the back roof loose and take 2" more out of the rear depending on what side you are on to drop it more in the back and get rid of their 5 1/2 chop on one side and 4 3/4 on the other side. Cut the whole back glass channel out and some of the back roof. That will take care of their screw up.

This is the Chevy the club chopped at my garage a few years back. It will flow out like this one.


Take the whole section of rear window out




How many guys does it take to saw one cut? plenty if the thing keeps hanging up. lol



Drop the glass back in laying it almost flat flowing with the lined that follow the roof

Hey Steve, I've got a '55 or '56 Packard rear bumper if you want it. You might like it for the '54.

1950 Buick grille. The bumper on this one is good but the grille teeth are rough. I know where another one is that the grille is good but the bumper is shot. Hopefully they don't want too much for the grille teeth at the next yard.

Bending all the round stock over my leg got old so I grabbed an old rim and welded a piece of metal on it to bend the round stock. Works pretty good.
