When it comes to customizing a car or light truck almost always a roof chop is on the list but a Rolls Royce Roof Chop, now that is a bit different.
This neglected Rolls Royce has obviously had at some time a hard life so a bit of customizing wont do it any harm, perhaps it may even turn out to be a crowd stopper.
This roof chop was done as a demonstration in a car park and completed in about 4 hours by a team who would have been well versed on what each guys job would be.
Looking at the almost empty glass of beer on the hood, and a coffee mug on the dash, refreshments were provided to keep the workers happy.
Looking at the markings on the pillars where the cuts are to made, this roof chop was about 2 inches and it is interesting to note where the cuts were made.
This was a comparatively simple roof chop as there were no compound curves at the rear, and the rake of the front windshield was moderate.
I have seen roof chops being done on cars with quite pronounced compound curves around the back and marking out the cuts needs to be very carefully considered to avoid excessive time in getting the roof welded back into place with it all looking ‘factory natural’.
If the chop is to be radical then there is more to consider, such as can the seats be made low enough, alteration to the rake of the foot pedal especially the brake, how much extra leg room can be gained, and what will the height limitations be for driver and passenger.
Last but not least, unless the car is for show only, how will visibility be affected, and will the car still be enjoyable and comfortable to drive.
Good team work here, looks like they even had time for a beer while on the j0b.
