What chopped up a hardtop?





Love the idea of combining the hardtop and an open back. More pics though.

If the rest of the hardtop looks as good up close as the 1.5" tall strip of the right side that we can see does from ten feet away, you're golden!

Looks perfect from this angle, low light and so far away.

I think it looks great! Maybe run some black foam pipe insulation on the edge to give it a bit of protection and hide the exposed parts.

I've got a couple extra laying around. One is Dozer colored. Make an offer! (Hint: I hate that thing and would appreciate it out of my yard).

Hey, if we didn't bust balls around here then everybody would be here.

Looks good. Maybe some spray expanding foam then pipe insulation.

That's a great idea. You do that, chisel out a small amount and then use auto body puddy. Finally shape and sand to make nice corners and put a little rattle can colour on top.

I think it looks cool, with the understanding that it's still a work in progress. When it's finished I think it'll be badass.
