      Here is another picture that does not truly show the scale of the car. since its closer than the truck it looks much bigger than it really is.

        The Plexiglas rear window in the car is in very poor condition and it is very hard to see through because of all the cracks. The tint hides the damage from the outside but it is still something that I will need to replace. I found a customs shop that said they would do it but they wanted $550 to $600 to do it. I will have to pass on that. I contacted another place that said they would do it but said that they would only do it if I had them put glass in it. They said that they could cut a piece of glass out of a windshield for it. Now while I love the idea of having glass in it, the fiberglass roof is extremely thin and light weight and I don't feel the top would hold up to the weight of the glass. So I feel that I have no other option than to stay with a Plexiglas window. I will most likely have to make one myself since every other company I called told me they could not cut or install a Plexiglas window for me because it was against the law, Others said it was a hazard and if it was not safety glass they could not do it.

          Went to transfer the car and have my year of manufacture tags registered to it. At the BMV I was informed that since the vin number was not on the dash that i would have to go to the sheriffs office for a vin inspection. While I was parked in front of the jail I figured it was a great photo opportunity.

            Well my historic year of manufacture license plate has been registered to the car. I wonder how many times I will get pulled over for it being expired. Ohh well it's 100% legal!

              For those wondering how I fit the plate. I made this license plate adapter bracket for the car. It might not look like much and that's because it isn't. It did not take long for me to make this. Drilled 4 holes, counter sunk 2 and tapped the other 2. Flat head screws go into the countersunk holes and bolt the bracket to the car. The license plate then makes use of the tapped holes. I can't understand why anybody would buy one of these brackets for $40+ when they are so simple to make.

                First day taking the top off. I have to say, it looks like a much larger car when it is topless.

                  At some point in this car's past someone has done some modifications that I can't figure out. Maybe one day someone will be able to enlighten me with some logical reason to why this hole was cut through the engine cover and carpet.

                    Well I got to see my motor for the first time. Boy is it messy compared to all my other cars. It will clean up nicely later on. I may have to make a Plexiglas engine cover for it down the line but that will be after I get it all cleaned up.

                      Here is the bracket that the hardtop bolt to. It had aluminum blocks and nuts at the bottom. I made slightly larger blocks and installed rivnuts into them to make it much easier to take the top on and off. sorry I forgot to take a pic of the brackets I made. I will try to remember to get pics next time i remove the top.

                          They sure liked using this clear silicone to seal stuff up. this blue wire looks like it was ran from the positive side of the battery into the cabin of the car.I have no clue what it was for.

                            Behind the seats the plastic strip that held the carpet was broken. In an attempt to make it look better they used double sided fabric tape and taped a black piece of cloth to hang over the edge. I have removed the fabric and tape and cleaned the yellow glue from the tape off of the plastics of the car. I am now on the lookout for a replacement piece to hang the carpet with.
