    If you do some searches, there have been several threads regarding the topic that you mentioned. Thanks for going back and editing your initial post, to tell us what you are working on.

    One of the best ways that I've seen was to use roadster cowl pieces and then fab new doors.

    OK maybe once or twice
     
  7. It's not obvious to lop off the posts with a saw, finish the tops and install roadster windshield posts to them? You sure you want to tackle this project yourself?

    (I assume the Sport Coupe is the cloth top one, so there's not a lot of roof to cut off).

    I think that you would be better off buying a roadster cowl and mating it to the sport coupe rear clip. That is what I am doing on my project.
