A guy over here in Sweden has a '63 Nova wagon, and he cut the top open. Then installed an orange plexi sheet. Looks real cool! Not sure, I might have some pic of it... I found a pic, but not of the top. The whole car. Here it is:

Gary,

After painting an eraser will remove the paint, leaving the "chrome" letters.
