Would you put t tops on SVTF?

How would T tops look on a SVTF? Has any one seen it done?

I was considering doing this mod in the summer but I think it might look tacky on a hatch.
Nice is the objective I'm going for. But different. Any opinions welcome. Thanks

I would say thats definatly a no the car isn't flat enough
it looks good on camaros etc. because the car is so low the focus is way to high off the ground would look really funky

I dont even know if it would be possible the way that the roof is curved and all. If your going to drop that kinda money try a convertible? talk about being different.

It would be different but look silly at the same time.

structurally it would be very difficult besides. the thing would bend like a pretzel. I agree it would look bad (and thats not good)

Don't think that would look good at all. Plus it would be very exspensive.

If you did anything like that I would do one of those large cloth roofs, like on the old volkswagons and I think the new minis also have them

I think cars with T-Tops require doors with exposed windows ? Meaning no frame around the door where it meets the roof.

I'm postive that you are correct guerro. We had a 91 Camaro with T-Tops, the windows were exposed, to be a matter of fact, every car I've seen with T-Tops have had exposed windows.
