    Boomer;

    A coupe can, indeed, be converted into a convertible but it is a HUGE amount of work. I have been doing it for the past couple months. I have just posted a couple pictures under Technical Discussions - going topless started by MAPICS MAN with a few views of what I am trying to do.

    If you want more pictures or more info, email me offline and I can send you what I have and what I have done.


    Cheers

    Hi,BOOMER welcome to the forum.A convertible or Targa top is a lot of work strengthing the frame, because the the Targa is missing the T-bar in the roof this weakens the frame and can cause it to sag.The same thing happens with a convertible.I would say the easyiest way would be to stick with the stock T-Top if you can get one a GT or SE car should work (ask the kit manufacturer first).but this depends on the kit you are thinking of purchaseing.I have seen 355 spider, non convertibles (that would look nice with a T-top)I dont think you could convert a convertible to a hard top or T-top (possibly but it would be a lot of work.)Ask your self this do you have the skill and time to strengthen the frame?

    THANKS, DON, AND JAMES BOND. YOUR EXPERTISE IS GREATLY APPRECIATED. I NEED TO RETHINK MY IDEAS ON THIS PROJECT.IT SEEMS A FIERO T TOP IS HARD TO COME BY. THE MR2 T TOP SEEMS TO BE MORE AVAILABLE, BUT IM NOT SURE THE DIMENSIONS ARE AS EXACT AS THE FIERO. I THOUGHT I HAD SEEN SOME 328/308 FIERO BASED CARS WITH TARGA TOPS BUT I MAY HAVE BEEN MISTAKEN..
