Thanks Guys,

I'll need to make new side vent windows for it, but that shouldn't be too bad. The Februrary 2012 model magazine article I saw this outlined in suggested to cut the roofs behind the windshield trim. The thought of gluing a seam that long, didn't appeal to me so I cut at the A pillars.

And I did buy a resin '67 Mustang coupe body, in case I had a bad day.

Nice work Roy, looks great!

You should make a few casting while the mold is fresh, I'm sure there would be a few buyers here for it!

Thanks Guys,  for all the positive comments.

Jeremy that would be a great idea but, I don't know the first thing about resin casting. :unsure:

Roy,  Awesome Coupe!  Great job getting that top to fit.  I love that "69 GT500 too. Very cool color!  They're looking really good, can't wait to see them finished.

Thanks you guys!

 

And there are a couple of other builders that have contributions to this CBP in the works that I'm hoping to see as well.
