Thank you, very much.

yes you will
next we have to extend ea. side rail near the jiont 1/2"
and in the same spot is the midle bow with a piece on each side that has to be extended 1/2"
follow along if you can these are all the side rails 2 on ea. side so thats 4 pieces we have to extend 1/2" we buith a jig on top of the table on these metal stands we have so we could get every thing clamped up tight
Looking sick Alex.
alls i know this is a crazy amount of work and were not sure if its gona evean work and i didnt want to just tac these all togther and try it i was word about the trait and trueness of these parts i mean this is the main structure of the top IT HAS TO WORK !
lets get the oter edge done
Wow! Wondered what you guys have been up to.
almost got the the main frames done
in this pic i think you can see how we dropped the pivet piont down 1 7/8" and for ward 3/4"
now on the the center bow pivots
a gain this was a bitch to clamp down so we can weld em again we made a jig on top of the table
WOW Alex, that is a tremendous undertaking. the proportions look right on. its going to be perfect. keep it up!
Looks awesome. I wish I could afford to buy it from you when you are done.
you dont have lil ceasers pizza this is just the test windshield the will have to go to tonys shop
yes thanxs if this was my car i would have done a carson top i dont like the look of a convertable top when its down it looks balky in the reses it sits in but this is my wifes car and this top HAS to be funtionable
were going man going

Fuck ya, Did somebody say Little Caesars Pizza.
G man you and the crew do nice work. I'm hooked.
Nice work there Alex.....!
Killer work as always!
Nuts. nice job chopping that top. My brain hurts thinking about it.
Looks sweet Alex!
Looking Good! Like the profile!
Damn, putting in that overtime! Lookin good Al.
wow.. love this build...
Ooooooo. I"ll be following along on this kustom Caddy build
ok getting the center bow mounts finished
the clamping was crazyness
ok it was killiong me so at this piont we desided to put every thing to gether to see if and how it works
I am totally down with the top chop and love the flow you're going to end up with, but why relocate the gas filler to the trunk when it was already completely hidden behind the license plate?
every thing worked fine so we desided to put the back seat in to see if it clears
every thing works good so its were gona finish up the rest of the of the welding
