So you did it so you won't be cutting the windshield but you will have to cut the rear window. Usually the opposite of what everyone else does. Dare to be different, betcha MPG will improve some.

Keep us posted.

i'm going to have the glass cut(dont like plexa) and keep the wing windows in the front door
do you think a rag top would look good
i think i will cut top of the doors off and switch left to right to make them suicide and weld tops back on
that will put the door handles in the front
i will keep you updated

Are you going to have enough room for the steering wheel? Hell, I cant even straighten out my fingers without hitting the windshield in my '61.


I'm sure you have something already planned. Keep the pics comming!!

I was thinking of doing that to my Volkstruck roadster.

Will you be able to use the wiper assembly?

if you can find a 3-d waterjet (cnc) you can have the rear window cut but it cost $$$$$
and yes you can use the wipers because i moved the wiper mount back with the windshield.
