I don't mean any offense, but that top makes that thing qualify as a hideosity. It's got to come down out of the clouds.

Looks good in the new drawing BUT it's going to be tougher to do in real life. If you look close at the pic youl'll notice a full roll cage already installed. Dropping the top would require trashing all that fine work.

It looks like there are no front posts for the roll cage. I just ignored the roll bar while chopping the top in the photo (The New Virtual Kustomz Thread! which points back to chopping the top on a metro where MARTINSR and willys36 illustrated the process. It looks like the pie-shaped cut MARTINSR described would be needed if you intend to keep the rear window and cut it down). Couldn't the roll cage be cut at the bottom without too much pain? IIRC, he said he put a frame under it, so could the back mount points move forward on the frame without too much extra fabrication?

[Edited to add:]
Ever thought about sectioning? See attached.

THANKS GUYS!!!!! The roll cage is going to be completely redone,, the body is removeable, so it will be easy to redo the cage,,,[ this is kinda like changing horse's in the middle of the stream,,turning out to be a nightmare] I intend to cut the cage out , chop the top, then remove the body and finish weld the cage,, as for cutting the rear portion of the top at the window area,, I think I will leave the wider bottom to the sail panel,, it leaves more mass, and makes the window look a lot smaller, I just havn't decided if I want to strech the top or lean the windshield back,, I kinda like the look of the leaned back posts, and less work,, I do know I need to get that fender cleaned up and some DP on it, tahnks BILL

That section job is cool,, a section along with a 3" chop would also require a hole in the top for the head to come through,, I feel like Saquile, O-Neal in a V/W already,

A laid-back windshield, in steps. Contrast changed for the top to show what was rotated. Windshield post rotated 15 degrees back from original position.

1 - rotation
2 - shortening front
3 - cleanup

Changes character without changing headroom.

Making it real is left as an exercise for the victim, er, owner. (In other words, I don't have a clue if it could actually be done this way).

I reckon one big body mod would suffice, the extended nose.
