    Here is a couple of shots with out the boat hardware.
    I designed a latch that operates from under the dash.
    I also air brushed a little dark in the phony vents so
    they would look open. Bill

    Great stuff!

    Would you post some detail shots of how you are securing the hood now? It really looks terrific without the boat hinges.

    deerebill  ; I like the top mounted wipers , what are they from ? where did you get them or did you get the car with them ? I wanted to to do that to mine but I was not sure how to mount them or if I would still be able to use the top .         &nbsp ;         &nbsp ;  , Dan R

    If you have the boat type top that came with the kit,or the kit wind shield you may not be able to install them. Most of the items can be found at Speed Way motors.A motor,arm,and blade is $29.99,the catalog
    also has wind shields and other goody’s in it.Good luck.  Bill
