    Another lame attempt to turn a special coupe into a roadster. I bought it this way... my questions are simple. Will a roadster door bolt on in place of this horrible chopped coupe door? Its already to far a roadster, might as well go ahead and finish it.

    I did a couple searches to no avail. Links to coupster builds, or coupster to actual roadster quarters conversion. Sorry but I love the knowledge available here from you guys.

  2. Nope. Completely different. But it is fairly simple to make the door look good.

    I figured they were shorter. I'll have to redo the tops of these to look nice. It amazes me how Crappy of a job people do and consider it cool... and safe...

    I've actually go a set of roadster quarters as well, guess I could actually build it as a roadster... hard part is finding the correct sail panel

  4. You certainly Could make it look a lot better. You have to modify the Cowl the a piller and thin the doors down. I converted my sedan Cowl into a roadster Cowl for pick up Build I'm doing and then just made the doors.

    Any pics or links? I would like to see. I've seen so many bad coupster conversions. I just don't want to fall in that category. .HA

    Good point flathead31, I too have been searching the HAMB using Google, much better results than the HAMB search engine.
