THIS BODY STYLE IS A NEW PRODUCTION FOR ROD BODS DOWNUNDER
Utilising our 3 inch chopped 1932 3 Window Coupe we have scalped the roof at the front by 1.3/4 inches (45 mm) leaving the rear window and front windscreen the same opening areas as our original 3 inch chopped 1932 3 Window Coupe.
We have also laid the whole A Pillar back by 1.3/4 inches (45mm) at the top and moved the bottom of the A Pillar forward 1 inch (25mm), by doing this you have the same vision as our standard 3 inch Chopped Body and by bringing the screen back has also improved upward vision
With angling the roof there also has been no head room area lost
“If you are after a 1932 3 Window Coupe that is a little bit different from the rest then this body style is definitely for you!!”
This is a work in progress, this Body Style is available NOW.
The following pictures are of the plug in which once finished we will make a New Mould and commence production
We will update pictures on a regular basis so please keep checking progression
As you can see above the whole A Pillar and Windscreen Frame has been laid back. If you look at the bottom of the A Pillar you will see a gap near the sill showing we have moved it forward 1 inch.
As you might see in this photo the sides of the roof have been sliced and brought down.
The Body was made without the traditional Eyebrow moulding that runs across the top of the windscreen in later photos you will see this top edge a lot rounder and a small eyebrow will be formed.
As you can see in them above and below photos everything is held together with tags of steel and screws, we have glassed on the inside, once this is dry we will heavily grind the outside and glass reinforce the joins.
As you can see in the next few photos we have fibreglassed all our cuts and repairs also rounded the edge above the windscreen.
As you can see in the picture below to the right is a Standard 3” Chopped Rod Bods Downunder 3 Window Coupe, to the left is the “New Lean Mean 32 3 Window Coupe”.
It has been scalped by 1.3/4” and the A Pillar has been pushed forward at the bottom 1” and laid back 1.3/4” at the top.
The windscreen area is untouched staying the same 3” chop as is the rear window.
It still retains the same head room area and has slight improvement of upward vision to our standard Rod Bods Downunder 3” Chopped 1932 3 Window Coupe
