      Ok, this should help explain what is actually being done.
      To all who mentioned the door issue, as you can see I didn't actually do anything to them. It seems in that render from that angle the seam isn't visible

            I see from this that Paul's concern about the door opening is resolved, but isn't it going to be inconvenient needing to roll the window down every time it is opened?

              I planed to replace the side windows with lexan, so I could make them the desired shape. From what ive read those don't handle rolling down well though. If that's unbearable, since I drive a subaru svx, i had the idea of taking its really tiny roll down rear windows. Which in 2 years i've never used and mounting them within the hypothetical lexan window.. but i'd rather not. The ac does work now, this would by no means be a daily, and heck the roof comes off anyway. As an aside i'm gonna keep eyeing cars with the desired window shape. like the 350z. which I think could make a good swap. Eager for any advice.


              Of course when it comes down do it it's not really necessary to have such a roof cap. If i black out the windows and paint the roof black so it all color blocks together it looks fine too.

                I don't know if it's your intent as a game designer, but it reminds me of some of the older batmobiles. The physical body/buck seems a lot sexier than your renderings as well. I don't know if it's because you haven't added the rear spoiler or roof covering, but I like it without. The wheel arch openings appear larger and higher on the body giving it a more aggressive look as well.

                  Something to consider. I have this feature in my G and I have seen it in Mustangs. I am sure it's in other cars as well, but...

                  There is a way to have the window drop when the door is being opened and when it is closed it will slide back up. All done automatically.

                  Just incorporating this feature could solve the concern with having to roll the windows up and down getting in and out and could allow you to use glass instead of lexan.

                  Just a thought.

                    If I understand this right and the reason for going to Lexan is to get the correct shape where the new bodywork is, just trim the existing glass window. It is done with a sandblaster. Drape forming Lexan replacement windows will cost a fortune.

                      Or Just don't have the thing on the roof. I don't see what purpose it really serves. It looks like the body is just wearing a baseball cap.

                        I like your solution better than mine.

                          A good point. That is what it looks like. A 90s bat mobile in a ball cap. I did some renders of it without it. looks better. And hey saves me build time.

                            Ok, this is the car with out the roof cap. I blacked out the roof so it would match the glass. Since the wing extensions I had on the car before were designed to work with the roof cap, without it they aren't really necessary. So they were replaced with some generic fins.
                            The Camaro's rear glass is a good 3/4 inch wider per side than Corvette's side windows. So since I would be left with a gap anyway, I carried the vent I had behind the door already, up and onto the roof. Could probably make a good cabin vent.
