Vinyl top separation trim..

I'm at some point in the winter or spring gonna start a project taking the Buick GN kit and making it a little average as far as looks. I want to make the rear area of the roof a vinyl-style top. I found an old thread from two years ago where someone added styrene strips to make the trim, and was curious if anyone had a suggestion on thickness of styrene to use?

It varies on 1:1 cars. I've seen them as narrow as 1/2" and fairly wide on landau tops like what your trying to do. I wish I could be more help but I'm sure someone will pop up with a better answer. I think you'd be safe using .80mm half round up to a 1.25mm half round

Certainly gives me an idea of what to look for thanks Dave. I have a place near me that carries a lot of evergreen so i should be ok once i decide on a type.

Back to back posting is kind of tacky, but does anyone know if the Revell Monte hood fits on this GN body at all?
