    Dont do it. Just sell this one to someone who wants a hard top and buy a t-top car. quality will be better as well.

    Seriously -- if you really wanted to do this you would probably need the windshield frame and roof from a T-top donor car to make it all work and not look like complete smack.

    I know. I'm being a smacktard for a reason...lol. Not a feasible mod. It is like brain surgery on an F-body. Not an easy thing to even think of. Too much involved.

    one word: leaks.

    i would imagine it might be worse on an "aftermarket" t-top as opposed to factory.

    yeah keep it hard top or just get new car


    Owning a 9 sec ricer is like coming out of the closest: at first you'll surprise everyone, but in the end you're still gay
