hi, that looks like it will be a great mod to do.
Will the windscreen be ok after the chop job, and what are your plans for the soft top? :)
Just :) to Cause a Landslide - Some :superlglue: will be included .....

Hello paul,
the changes in the construction will be very extended.
the windshield will be original or made of steel.
the soft top will be without any mechanical funcion and open with persening

Great rear end Karsten, i love the Roadsters :mrgreen:
I seem to remember astons or julian saying the real roadsters had much done to add Stability for the body (to open doors).
Are you going to add extra strength under the floor where it can be hidden from view.

Hello casper, the floor will be reinforced with metal. The improvement is going to be invisible .

Really like what you did with the white 1960 prototype Karston and your 1932 Pocher Bugatti.
