    Several members on here did the hardtop to t-top conversion.
    Never heard of a hardtop to targa top coversion.
    You can remove the rear glass and replace it with a part that gives the notch back look common to targa top vehicles. A member on here has done that too.

    Convertibles dont have the center support?

    I've seen what the inside of the camaro roof, I could be done...would it be pretty? no, unless you have access to body supplies, but I don't think you'd be able to put the roof piece back on, once its off, its off.

    I had a targa car the same time i had my t-top T/A and i liked the t-tops better. With the targa off my supra compared to the t-tops off my T/A the chassis flex was much more noticable on the supra with the targa off.
