  • my newest mod, slight teaser, winter super-special preview

    I don't know why I bothered, I don't even drive this car in the rain, chances are even slimmer it will ever see the snow, but it is my nature - modify stuff, I can't leave anything stock ...

    this rough hardtop that I bought, it needed some work, so I decided to strip and paint it





    countless hours spent on trying to smooth the surface and get rid of all the imprefections





    it was actually primered twice to get the perfect result



    and painted



    I was very excited, so I quickly tried it on, it's not polished yet, doesn't have the moldings or gaskets... it will look much better once finished !



    and few cell phone pics

    Truely one of a kind. I totally understand your need to modify things but a hard top for a vert is plain old nuts.

    You have issues, one of which is you are 2 hours from Thunderbolt and have not been there yet.

      You are right Matt...hard top on vert is redundant, but VLAD that looks cool as balls!
      Cheers,

                Looks great ! Complimented the car perfectly. A quick suggestion, why don't you put a some kind of black stripe or something on the little side flare on the hardtop which would make it more visible ... Don't know if I made sense...

                    Vlad,

                    I will check into it for you. I would think so but the powers that be make those decisions.

                      like I said earlier, those pics showed the top that was NOT finished, there are 2 black strips (moldings) that run along the roof, they set a nice contrast. I'll post more pics next week
