Converting a convertible into a coupe
Some of you may remember that I have made several major changes to my 2006 Solstice since I bought the car new in 2006. The first change was the LS7 / T56 engine swap. Next I designed and fabricated new bumpers, a hood scoop, and opened up the front fenders for a Cobra-style look. The latest modification is the conversion from convertible to coupe. This mod was made possible when coupe #802 was sent to a salvage yard and cut in half because of Lemon Law issues. I learned of the car and bought the back half and top several years ago. So the parts I used from the donor were practically new. All of the unique pieces and parts were there, including the unique plastic bits and pieces.
If anyone has any specific questions, I will be happy to answer.
