Why is everyone tellin me not to chop it? The roof is fucke dup as it is, shitty as sunroof hole from previous owner and the 1/4 windows are all etched and I don't wanna spend 500 on a new top. What and where and how do I brace the inside?

I wouldn't recommend cutting the top off. Sure it looks cool and all but think about what happens when you try to sell it to start that next project. Not many people are going to be willing to spend a lot of money on a car that doesn't have a roof. I'm always seeing these cars in the junkyards. Do you have a garage to keep it in? If not, then spend a little money and get your roof fixed. Better yet, save your money and get a better car.

And a car without a roof is not a convertible. It is just a cut up car.

Yeah I got a 16 car garage I can keep it in ;) so that ain't a problem. Well I don't think I'd be sellin this one. Not alot of chopped cars around hre in Northern Nevada so I think it'd be a good investment. Anyone help me where to brace it?
