The hood looks real nice on there Ghost!  It's nice to see them hood lines on a Hotrod, definitly gives it a good look. ;)

So tasteful and classy. I'd like to see more on the top build too.

madmike3435  Have you had any trouble with the flex plate on the engine in front of the 700R-4.I have torn two of the centers out of two of the flex plates,Not any more i went with a flex plate from a 78 Nove 6 cylinder with a 350 tranny and hooked that 700R-4 up to that  no problem and twice the flexplate  look her up   vette59jdwl

NOPE, PUSHING ABOUT 420 HP AND NO FLEXPLATE PROBLEMS, GET THEM FROM GM OVER THE COUNTER.   I DID HAVE A PROBLEM WITH 2 OF THE 3 BOLTS IN THE CONVERTER COMING LOOSE AND ONE COMPLETELY OUT ,  AND CAUSING A BIG PROBLEM AND HAD TO REPLACE THE CONVERTER AND THE FLEX PLATE.

Thanks Guys.  Are you wondering about the fabric, or the build of the framework for the top?

My roadster will need a top. I doubt if it will fold. I am trying to preserve as much trunk space as I can and intend to build a top that can fit in a small package stored there. I'd like to see all of what you did on your top.

 Top fabrication.  I'll do it, and start on it this weekend or sooner. It will be in depth and include the hard top I built first. Thanks for the interest guys.
