lookin killer scott!!
I really dig everything about this car. When I first saw it, I was afraid it was a chop gone wrong, but everything else looked so cool. Now with the Carson top in progress, its going to be really bitchin! Great work! Though I was bummed about your color choice...mostly 'cause I wanted to paint my car that color Can't have two of them running around these parts now can we.
Looking forward to seeing it soon!
keep em coin scott
Wow. That's a ton of work.
Looking good Scott! Wanted to show you what I figured up with mine. Found some fold down latches that worked out perfect. Do mind the welds I know they suck. Still trying to figure out how to make a flux wire weld look good.
Bitch en work boys.
scott were you at
Nice work...Keep the pictures coming..
Been a long time since I updated...I've been working on at Carson inspired removable top for some time now and have gone through a few revisions based on the input and feedback both positive & some negative (which I heard the loudest) at a few shows and from various friends as well this past fall. The basic profile is in place & a bit of adjusting still needs to be sorted out....add to the frame will be no more that another 3/4 in of padding and material.
side profile looks great. What color is the top going to be and is the copperish color the final color? I love it.
Thanks Motoandy...top will be some shade of white. Final color is yet to be determined...as thats a long way off!
Hotup, did that start off as a hardtop or a sedan? The profile of your roof looks great.
It was a Bel-Air hardtop.
Thanks, I am thinking of cutting the roof of my hardtop due to large amounts of rust in the roof edges (about 70% of the edge is rusted) and build a top (until I can find a donor convertible). I think I would keep the rear qtr windows but your top is looking great. what size diamter rods did you use to form the top
Also, what did you do to re-inforce the frame (to prevent frame sagging through the doors)
Are you running 15 or 14 inch Rims? Thanks looks good.
15" rims....no frame reinforcing. Hardtop is said to be the same as a convertible....1/4" rod but I would do some different in a few places is I was to do another one
