    Coupe to t-top

    If going from coupe to t-top, do I need any frame reinforcement?

    Depends greatly on which car you are doing it to but generally, yes.

    355 replica on a 86 fiero chasis, I don't want to do a lot of body work if that's whatsrequired. The car is finished, and donn't want to start over. LOL
    Not worried about replacing the roof panels, just want to to open the car up, with as little work as possible.

    Make sure you have both cars on a level surface!! Slight jack pressure in the middle of each Fiero. When you are done you will still have two good Fieros. If you haven't, go to www.fiero.net and down load the T-top leak manual. Lots of good information there. The experts Tim Perrigo of www.fieroparts.com and Ray Paulk of the T-top registery (raypaulk@fierottop.com) are the guys who bought out C&C Fiero T-top inventory after the fall of the Fiero. Ray's got good step by step pictures of the T-top install.

    Only one car, a 355 IFG body on a 86 chasis. I'll look at the other info, thanks.

    On a Camaro or firebird its very simple and easy but doing on a Fiero is going to be a little more complicated.

    Your going to need a donor roof with a T-Top and all complete parts. Its a simple cut, measure and replace.

    Id check around on the Fiero forums for parts because chances are you won't find them here. Fiero T-Top's are extremely rare like the convertable models. But if you where going to do a conversion your best bet is to find a donor car and go from there. Id ask them how its done though cuz i've never done it to a Fiero but I have to a Camaro. Fbodys where designed to have T-Tops, Fieros are designed to have sunroofs but with the exception of the T-Top and convertable.

    Maine F-40 gave some great advice.

    Pretty sure there's no frame mods except for the t part of the top if you call that a frame
