Sweet! That corner-hinged trunk sure is different. I have a project right now that could use something similar, hmm...

The Riv definitely has that Pro-Street 80s/90s monochrome smoothie look, too bad there aren't more photos! I'd love to see more of the details. I guess you'll just have to build another one!

Thanks,  I plan on building another one , different color and opposite  opening doors .  The A pillars and rockers being  soo thin has kept me from building it . I'm thinking of making a brace to go inside but still let me work on it.

I'm building a 'vette custom right now that was going to have a fragile roof, so I reinforced the roof with wire and JB weld, tied it into the B pillars, kind of a cantilever brace. That allowed me to leave the A pillars alone without worrying too much about snapping them, or warping the roof. Maybe a similar technique would work for your project. The only thing I'd do differently a second time 'round would be to pound the wire flat so it would have a lower profile, which would allow a headliner panel to fit and cover it up.
