If you have any digital pictures it might be helpful if you posted one or two so folks can get a better idea what you are working with.

To post a picture, first size it to approximately 4" tall x 6" wide and 100 dpi. Then, when you enter your next post, simiply scoll down on the edit screen until you see the "attach files" box and click on "Manage Attachments". Follow the directions to select the picture(s) you have. The software will upload them them as attachments at the end of your post.

Ive turned a 32 plymouth into a convertible, also a 28 Ford 2 door Sedan. Cboy is right, It would be a big help to see how and where it is cut off at.
Ive got some pics if it would apply?

on the 28 I just built a cap all the way around using the press brake and shrinker / strecher.
Ill post this one I built so you can see what to original body line looked like.

These pics were very early in the process. the door is slightly open it the one pic, thats why it looks a little off.



The plymouth coupe I had to make a little more room for the convertible top to fold down into the car. I had to slice and dice it back about 6".




Hope this helps some, pm me if i can be any further help. good luck, Bob
