You've been mostly-dead all day.
DTT BOTM WINNER
It may be awhile, but damn good chance this will get a chop eventually. If I come across a donor roof sooner rather than later, it could happen this summer. It could happen five years from now too. I started building and racing Bugs when I was 11 years old (early 80s), so I am very familiar with the process for chopping one the right way. The window rubber is beyond shot and the windshield is cracked, so good chance the chop happens when all gets replaced, so I am doing it just once. For a short time, I considered cutting the roof off and making it an actual roadster. The same reason that idea gets nixed is the same a chop could get nixed. It's pretty important that this is a Bug body with an SBC and classic rod front end. Too much altering can change that.
