Chop Class TEXAS November 15th-17th 2024
Are you interested in learning how to chop a top? We will be chopping a 1951 Chevy sedan! The weekend includes a meet and greet Friday, November 15th from 5-8pm, where we will brace the car for the chop and have some time for some "bench customizing"!
Then, Saturday, November 16th from 8am-8pm 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, 11/17 from 8am-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 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 $450. $350 deposit paid now is non-refundable so make sure you are available! Remaining $100 will be due Saturday 11/16 at 8am.
