    You have made a great transformation on your convertible! All of the things you changed really made it look so much better and more traditional.
     
  14. That turned out great. Congrats on your win and very nice looking car.
     
  15. Very nice, never saw this thread before.

    Mike - Great transformation! Well done, sir. And congrats on the magazine interest too.

    Can you show me (or explain) how your lakes pipes are mounted? I'd like to do something similar on my car, but I'm a little stumped on how to mount the pipes up along the rockers and keep them sturdy, but as close to invisibly mounted as possible. Got any close up photos with the pipes off that show how they attach?

    Thanks in advance.

    Well the front of the lakers are in the pods, the rears, I put nut serts in the rockers and under the lake pipes, then a bracket (piece of flat stock) I made that hold them to the rockers. If I didn't have the pods in front I would have did the same for the front as I did for the rear.
