T-Top Conversion

Q:     How hard is it to convert a hardtop to t-tops? I’m thinking of potentially doing it to mine with the smaller t-tops (Hurst? Or Fischer?). Any advice from anyone who has done it?

A:     It's not that hard. I did a 2nd gen and a 3rd gen with no issues. If you do correctly and use good seals and install right there is no issues. But it is a lot of work.

It’s your car, do what you want to do. Now the real question is what T-Tops will fit that generation properly. You will have to research and compare roof profiles so it doesn’t look off or poorly done. 2nd gen and 3rd gen won’t work on a 1st gen car. Do you research and make sure you put in weld in frame connectors to strengthen the chassis.
