    There is a second way you can convert the pick up or the convertible to the hard top if you want to stay with plastic you can use the Model King 70 Buick it's the same roof GM used in 69 and 70 on most of there full size cars and you will have glass that fits for the front and back.

     Wow ! for a model that was built some 30 years ago it's awesome I would leave it alone and not touch it in any way. I'm 65 and only have 3 or 4 models that made it through the years  I started when I was 10 in 1962 my first kit was the AMT 1962 Fairlane  I still have the model and about 23 years ago I found a unbuilt one in the box witch I will get to some day.

    Hi I like the look of the Chevy roof on the Bonneville it looks more formal GM should have used it. I used the roof from the 70 Buick and made it in to a Catalina with some trim change.

    Hi thanks I will do it for one of the kits but the other I am going to put a full roof on it so it does not make a deference on that one I guess with a 4 to 6 week wait I will start on the roof one first .!!!!

     I have been using that UV-glue for over a year now it's great it go's under many names I get under the name of 5 sec bond it's at almost every store I get it on Amazon they have 20 pages of it it's all the same just pick the lowest price one and they even have the refills I also now get that chrome pen there to also much less then other places both the UV-glue and the chrome pen have made modeling much more easy to work with and the UV-glue works very well with all resin I love it when your putting the chrome on it will not leave any haze and you can move it around till your in the right spot and then zap it I hold it for 20 sec's it's the same thing they use to harden the new filling's in your teeth.

    To anyone looking at Motor City or Missing Link just do it they both have the best resin kit's and parts I have ever used and they will chrome the plated parts that have to be plated top quality the body's look and feel like kit plastic very light no clean up as far as having to sand and cut to get things to fit it's to bad these guys could not pick up Modelhaus it would be a perfect model world.!!! and the big plus is both guy Jeff and Kevin are awesome to deal with. You can't go wrong with there items.
