Main structural consideration in making a convert out of a sedan is the top does provide for structure of the body..I cut the top off of a car once for a field beater and it sagged in the middle so badly after a while that the doors would not open and we had to jack it up in the middle to close them. Did not matter all that much at the time as we were kids having fun..
