Mudoilngears,

Just noticed in a post in April/2015 your HARDTOP!!!! I like it, looks a heck of a lot better than mine! Can you share the manufacture name and any other details? Thanks.

Cheers,

Thanks for the compliment. I actually built that myself. I didn't like what is available on the market, so I used fiberglass and built it. There's a thread on it somewhere, although I never finishes thw write up.

I started another thread just for the engine assembly/swap, here: viewtopic.php?f=22&t=88664
I just discovered lots of piston slop, so I guess I will have to tear into it, ans see how much I'm going to need to spend on a full rebuild. Yikes!
