Convertible Focus

I know how useless this is without pics, but I didn't have a camera.

I have seen some questions, asking if you would need to reinforce the Focus to make a convertible. I just went out on an errand and saw a convertible, kind of. The guy just chopped the roof off a ZTS. Said he was bored at 2am last year with a few friends. They got out the Sawzall and cutting torch and boom. It was pretty rough around the edges, but he said he didn't reinforce anything.

One time I was really bored and I turned a Hat into a sneaker
I'll do a write up on the how to section of the forums; due to the fact this is bound to create enormous interest.

To be honest it’s less complicated than it sounds. Just so you know it will not work with a Sombrero, A New York Yankee’s ball cap or if you are
