Chop Class Fargo North Dakota March 2023
***This class is a rare opportunity in North Dakota, Minnesota, and South Dakota! I do multiple classes a year in Texas, Kansas, Colorado, etc... But this is the first opportunity for you kind folks, and most likely the only class that will be scheduled in the area in the next 3-5 years! Please sign up now if you're interested!***
Are you interested in learning how to chop a top? Whether you're a beginning metal worker, weekend warrior, or advanced metal shaper, you'll learn new skills and meet great friends in the Chop Class in Fargo, ND! On the weekend of MARCH 24th-26th 2023, we will be chopping the top on a '37 DeSoto coupe, taking it from stodgy old stocker to sleek kustom!
The weekend includes a meet and greet Friday March 24th from 5-8pm, where we will brace the car for the chop and have some time for some "bench customizing"!
Then, Saturday 3/25 from 8am-10pm we will start the chop process! You will learn how to lay out a chop and make the proper cuts. You'll learn the process of designing a good looking chop that flows well, and has classic proportions! This is a hands-on class, so everyone will have the chance to weld, cut, grind, and get familiar with tools like the English wheel, shrinker/stretcher, and more! No experience is necessary, but the drive to learn and build Kool stuff is a must!
Sunday, 3/26 from 8 am-6pm we will be finishing the chop, making the new sail panels and shaping the door tops. I will teach participants many of the tips and tricks I have learned over the last 20 years in regards to metal shaping and welding.
Lunch will be provided both days, and supper will be provided Saturday.
Total cost for the class is $350. $250 deposit paid now is non-refundable so make sure you are available! Remaining $100 will be due Saturday 3/25/2023 at 8am.
