    Is the glass smaller on the non t-top doors? It always seemed like the glass is smaller, although I could be wrong.


    Whats your plan for paint for it?

    No the glass is not smaller, Also it is a myth about the doors being specifiic. as for the paint, it's gonna be under wraps for now, since after the first car everyone and their brother did a two toned paint scheme.:lol:

    more impressive progress, would you mind me asking if this is what you do for a living or is this just a passion of yours? it looks like you've already forgotten more than i know about building cars at age 23 :rlaugh:

    Great job preserving such a rare body :nice:. What are your plans for the exterior? Are you going to stay with an 83-84 style front bumper? I will be following this build for sure.

    Thanks everyone.
    1991notchback - I want to have cars like this and I'm just too tight to pay someone to do it, so I find out how to get it done and go.

    25th. - yea bring Joe over and when he see's all the stuff he'll feel lucky.

    Coast2Coastang - We will retain all of the foureyed ques that we can especially the front end. Oh yea and for sure the star trek steering wheel is a keeper.:lol:
