Rake chop

Been a while since i posted an update,

Summer is slowly appearing down here in Adelaide Australia which means its time to rust off the beetle and start workign on it again. What i have been thinking from day 1 is to do a chop top. (so if your a purist stop reading now).

Now most chops are equal front to back but i want to do a rake chop, i talked to a person on the internet and he said he raked it by just cutting the front and middle pillars then stretching the front and side pillars slightly to fit up. Anyway i decided i would photoshop this before i destroy one of my beetles.

Ideas for chops:
