Recent pics of painted hardtop, you can't really see many details, and no info on how its attached. Plus no response if this is going to a be a one off or if he is interested in making any more. Remember the guy who built this used a OEM vert frame to get the shape of this hardtop.

Oof... his soft top looks a little rougher for the ride. Also not understanding how the trunk is open unless he put the hard top on after the trunk was opened and then needs to remove it to close the trunk... unless it is hinged on the front edge of the hard top? (which would be cool)

I like how it looks but would prefer the buttress not be abreviated at the tip/point. That may be so the tips don't break off.
I see the convert top in the trunk . I wonder if this top just clips into the buttress holes and the windshield header latch? I would like to see it with the trunk and hood closed , hardtop installed.

Interesting. I applaud the effort Personally I find the coup top too confining for me. Having what is essentially a roadster top which is even smaller would be a deal killer for me. But I can see how some would really like it.

job well done. I hope he makes more. he will never be able to please everybody, thus always please your self ,there will be many other that also like what you have built . that go's with any thing built. kind of like the sky interior...not what I want in a sports car. but I hear some people actually like it. he could also make a glass trunk that is cut out (scalloped) for the butressesss's so the trunk would be easily assessed.
