i have a 58 hardtop kit and was thinking about cutting the roof off it.
how did you go about cutting yours? did you just use a really sharp knife or a small saw or somethin?

also wat does anyone use as body filler for models? a modelling putty or real body filler?
i have never really customized models before but i love your 58 and wanna build mine similar :cheesy:

thanks for the props. i cut the roof using a x-cato knife. just follow the window trim from the sides. also to be more true to a factory convert, cut the trunk square.

the green is the filler, also you can see the edges of the trunk that are part of the body now



i just highlited the str8 trunk

Nice attention to detail. It looks so good that un educated judges will think that it came that way and will not give you the credit you deserve. That mural kicks ass too.
