Now that is a cool sight!:cheers:

Are you going to restore the others like you did the blue one. Looking forward to another build thread like last time!

The Green one just arrived from Los Angeles. It belongs to Elyse. It is not getting the full treatment, but the body is coming off, all the rust fixed, and painted up better than new. I wont be detailing the frame and chassis like the other one. The third one, sadly, will be donating its roof to Elyses rig.


I will be doing a new thread for that build. I may do a second one following the conversion of the parts rig to a topless/pickup cab/trail rig. I just dont know yet, except that I dont want to part it and scrap it.

I should get started on Elyses this week, so look for the new thread.

Awesome sight! So I see that Elyse's has the wing vents and the donor doesn't...will you keep them or will they go?

Wow, where did you find the roof donor? What year is it? I am glad you do not want to part it.

What happened to Mannos? I don't see the Pig there anymore... :frown:

They stay. Getting fresh rubber seals too!

I assume you are getting them from Slocruisers? One thing I noticed is that they have a few gaps and some unevenness in places. I think that if you heated them up a little bit when installing them and really stretched them a bit..then anchored them in with some adhesive, the install would look and function better.
