    Hope for AD355 spiders

    I have a shop thread in the mall about my new shop in Ga. but I wanted to post this here.

    For the last few weeks I have been working on a new convertable top for the 355 spider kits. I know this is a problem spot on this kit as well as others. this top I am building is new not a reworked one as I get farther allong I will post more pics of it.
    here is what I have so far.
    PM me if you have any questions. once I get this one worked out I will see about building more to help your builds as well.

    As you build this, please keep in mind that the AD 355 using an OEM engine cover comes up much farther than the car you are using for your mock up. I think it is about an inch or so past the firewall. If you need some ballpark measurements and pictures, let me know.

    I am aware of this and I will be able to make one for that one as well. I will just have to change the size of the folding hinge I am building to make it fit.
    of corse I will need someone with that car first to get the size right. the top for this car is no easy task and I know a lot of people have tried. I think you all will be happy with the outcome of this top. I will keep all of you posted.

    Excellent work one of the better looking tops i have seen ,just a Question, will you be making a jig so you can build the convertible frame on a table , fill in the sheet metal area , & ship an yes the IFG style kit is different from the AD / Bartman Kits
    In the USA if you pay a company / person to start a plug, then it,s your plug and work ,it is not theirs to sell or trade !!

    Great idea. I think the factory boots are about 4 inches too narrow. I would love to see someone make a boot with embroidery like this one.

    if you can find some cheap material for a pattern i can have my upholstry guy do them from a pattern cut out of cheap material
