Chop Top Focus FTW

So I noticed that my Focus has almost twice as much head room than other sport compacts.
Has anyone ever done, or thought about doing a Chop Top on there Focus?
It would be pretty interesting to see what they look like.
Someone should do some photoshop to see what they might look like

I seriously considered doing this to my ST. I helped a friend of mine do it to his old 01 foci a few years back and and one of my other buds Camaros, it looked sweet on both of them. I always thought it would give a nice custom look to my ST. But its a pain in the azz to do, If i ever did it Id take it to a shop to be done this time around.

OMG, you're right. I should have known that. Roofline chops have been around forever, but it just didn't click when I read that first post. Oh well, maybe now I'll do one in Photoshop.
