Smitty, whadaya think about this old custom job

Recommended Posts

Smitty, you're an ol' custom guy.... This job has been around and for sale for 2-3 years. I strongly suspect the project was moving right along, until the realization of what having glass made for the chopped top was going to cost. While I personally commend the guy for making what he did out of a basic 4 door Super, I am not interested in purchasing....I just wanted to post this to draw in some discussion of these old school custom jobs. Whadayathink Smitty. BTW I really do have an appreciation of your knowledge and past 1st hand experience with these customs. I looked for the pictures of your scalloped 54 but could not find them in my files.

The side glass won't be so pricey, but getting the front and rear, THAT MAY BE A DIFFERENT ISSUE.

He must have a good eye to tape off such long scallops, huh?

Sounds like he is motivated, he says CASH TALKS.

This really could be a nice car for someone. Go to a lowrider glass guy and having the glass cut won't be quite so expensive. Calling up the local glass company will be though. I am curious as to his method of lowering this car though. That ride height with a non air bag suspension would be killer on trying to go up a steep driveway or speedbumps and pot holes.

I have just recently learned of a technique for dealing with the glass of chopped tops. I have read about it a few times now. Instead of trying to cut the glass, they sink the stock glass into the body to the desired depth. I guess for those who are good fabricators, this is easier and cheaper than having the stock glass cut, or having a new piece made.

Some do that, yes, but some designs don't allow such a method.

Others have the glass GROUND/SANDED, not cut. It's a very slow process, I have heard of it taking all day for one piece.
