Part One: Map It Out
Start by laying out lines, showing how much metal you want to remove for the chop. One of the problems with chopping a truck will be the glass. To avoid having custom glass made, this chop will be performed using all of the stock glass. John and the crew at Clean Cut figured out that by simply limiting how far the side glass rolled up showed how much they could cut and still retain the stock glass. The roof on this first-generation S-10 could be taken down 2-3/4 inches from stock.
