Roof Chopped, Slammed & Skirted Volvo Amazon - 'The Slamazon'

For a while a good mate of mine, Tom (aka Tinslecat) had been talking to me about what he could do with his Volvo Amazon. After a few months he brought it to my workshop for a drastic makeover: a roof chop, as well as slamming and skirting for good measure of course…

Below is a series of photos showing the process, starting with the car as it looked when it arrived. Where the roof chop is concerned, for this particular car I decided to quarter the roof as I didn't want to alter any of the angles of the window pillars, which would have changed the shape of the car. There are many different ways of executing a roof chop, and none of them are necessarily 'right' or 'wrong' - this is just the way that I prefer to do it.

For those wondering about the existing metalwork on the bonnet in the first photo: Tom had previously started to widen the front of the bonnet and I simply finished off the job for him. 

There are still a few more bits left to do on this car including the interior and the left rear wheel arch skirt; I'll post an update when it's all finished but for now if you have any questions, just ask!

Thanks for reading, and also thanks for Tom for asking me to work on this awesome car…
