  • 1940 roof options?

    I am starting to look at my options for when I get to the interior part of the restoration on my '40. Right now, it has no roof uphoulstry and I am not entirely sure on how it was mounted. Can somebody please post some pics.[?] I also think I will go with "Harvest" color from JDP for seats and doors, cieling. Need some prices though.

    You need to chop the top first. And then lower it. Put hydraulics under it. And then upholstery.

          Perhaps there is something that you can spray-on that will look good? Or you could glue some fabric to the ceiling? Or are you looking to spend big bucks and make it look exactly stock? If it were up to Red Green, he would duct tape a blue tarp to the ceiling.

                  No. I don't do chop tops. My moms car is completely stock and I always hit my head![B)] I'm too tall for that![:0] Actually, I like the '40 how it is, just restored.[^]
