Ya know John, I think this is why I love your work so much. We think a lot alike. Lol. I was staring at the car and the roof scoop quite a bit yesterday and I had this same thought. I think it would make a huge difference to lower it's height. I think it would flow better. Great idea!
Well, this is what I came up with. I think it cleans it up quite nicely.
I was able to remove the custom top from the roof by working it very carefully as to not to do any damage to the roof itself. It will require some filler to fix the pitting caused by the glue that was used but it went pretty good.
I removed the upholstered panels from the rear-facing scoop and I will end up just attaching the scoop as seen by itself.
