I don't know if this is the right term or not, BUT I am looking at possibly removing the rain gutters on my car. They are those two little grooves that run over top of the doors. Has anyone else done this???:1zhelp:
I still have a vinyl top and have not done this but it is a very popular custom trick with the leadsled crowd. It would really smooth off the roofline. I believe you can expect for the water to run down the sides of the roof when it rains.
i like the idea i love seeing rodding being done on our model cars and our years. although i too like the chrome and will not be doing it on my clone i am shaving the doors and doing some other rodding tricks. i say go for it. do it in plastic first though buy a model and do it in there its a whole lot cheaper than doing it and thinnking i dont like that. Remmeber any one can restore it takes a real man to cut it up!
I myself am planning on cutting the rain gutters off my 70 hardtop and smoothing it out.As well as may take a chance and suicide the doors as well.Plus im gonna put a full custom leather interior in it as well.With the exception as to using some billett alum. pieces around the instrument clusters
My plan isn't quite that in depth. I just trying to smooth out the look. I was planning on shaving the door handles, and it has expanded to include the the rain gutters. I may remove the chrome around the wheel wells to see how it looks.
