I have always used a 33/34 tub rear window frame from Labarron Bonney ON my deuce tops.
Looks great nice job...
Top #1 and window #2 are my choices. Top #1 compliments the radius of the rear quarter. Window 2 compliments the low profile of the car. Awesome project! JMHO.
YES # 1. TOP
YES #2. REAR WINDOW
bardahl1's mail slot rear window looks about 2" too high.....IMO.
it is, but that's because I have a tall wrap around seat, and I had to put it high to clear the seat
Bardahl1 - I think we're talking about the same window, though LeBaron Bonney's website doesn't list that specific window. The one I mocked up in #2 is 4 15/16" x 24 3/4" (according to the site anyway). I'm going to call them tomorrow to make sure the outer frame is stainless, and the inner is chrome since it's not real clear in their description.
And you're roadster is nice.....I've always liked the profile it has. What tire sizes are you running?
I love this roadster.
That's the window.
The tires in the pic are stock 18 wheels with Firestone 5.50 fronts and 7.00 STA SuperTransport rear
Currently it has 40 steelies 16" with Firestones 6.00 front and 7.00 rear
I have several sets of wheel tire combos
I did use the 34' rear window, and chopped stock type frame
Hello Mr Hotrodswe,
That car is just beautiful, I rarely write replies like this one preferring to talk about tech points etc, but I am just struck by the elegance and simplicity, please don't think I mean it was simple to acheive, now I'm getting "tongue tied" (finger tied?)
Anyway, Beautiful, Thankyou,
Speaking of rear windows, check this one out....
Don't know if it helps but heres mine
Is this a custom piece?
Hi Cory......Yes I think Roy Brizio built that roadster and made the louver rear window,owner told me it really cut down the air turbulence in the cockpit.
Here's a couple more tops.
I have no idea how I missed this thread !,... Arguably the best build ever on the HAMB (IMHO),.. Totally love this car,.. this was my all time favorite at Autorama. Such a awesome job !
Thanks a lot. Now I can't get this one out of my head.
Agreed...! It just looks so sweet!
Very nice Cory.... I was at Sid's yesterday and was so stoked to see the car in person!
We're real excited to have the interior done by the best.......a month from tomorrow we'll be landing in San Jose and getting ready to drive it down to LA.
I walked up and I was like, "Hmmm... This car really looks familiar?" Then Sid gave me the full run down on your plans! Too Cool! To see the car in person is really amazing. What a bitchin deal!
I've been getting some picture messages from Sid of the car.....and we can't wait to see it in person!
Some of the photos he sent are below:
That interior is gorgeous.. It really suits the car well.
I don't know about the mullet style top but, hey, whatever floats your boat.
Had a little fun with your picture.
So we will see it at the LA Roadster show?
Yes - we'll have it at LARS, driving it down from Sid's that week. Speaking of which, do you guys from California have anything you'd recommended to check out on the drive down from Santa Clara?
He just sent this photo to me a few minutes ago....it looks like the car is pretty much done:
Perfect upholstery for a perfect car.
Those door panels and the top are perfect. Very crisp lines. Beautiful car!
Cory, looks awesome! Sid does fantastic work.
Wow that is sweet I dig it
