Careful measurements were taken to ensure the centerline of the roof was perfect and that the windshield opening was symmetrical. And of course there is always something to be said for good old eyeball engineering. It was time to take a long hard look at the profile. The side silhouette was looking very good, so now work could proceed.

But alas we are out of both time and space, so you’ll have to wait until next issue to see the finished product. In the September issue we will finish the rear quarter windows, form the canted B-pillar, and make the transition pieces in front of the decklid up to the relocated rear window. Stay tuned, this is one very good looking top chop.
