            Toyota did do a limited run of convertable MRk 2 Mr2 SW20s which used the T Bar body
            If you used a normal hard top to convert then I would maybe agree but the T Bar Body is different,take a look on the microfish for the convertable and the T bar SW20 body structure

            About to do this conversion with your kit, any chance you could post a pic of body structure of tbar vs convertable , so can see what sill strengthening required - or if this not poss any idea's on how to get these diagrams ?

            Thanks, Nick.

                From what I can gather, the engine cover is the same. The difficulty comes when you need the new roof but I would have thought at least the frame could be sourced from the people that make the veranti. You may have to get custom rear butresses made in material to fit the extreme kit though. I heard that they supplied the roof for the few BAD convertables that are about.

                Good luck, i thought about it but im not brave enough! A Targa is probably as far as I would go.

                        Thank you! It was so much fun to paint it...I only did digital illustration for a while so it was quite something to be back at the easel. And...as it seems...I will spend more time there now...hahahahaha...
