I have a 97 z28 with a wrecked ttop. I see there are tons of hardtop to ttop conversions. what about ttop to hardtop conversions? Anyone done it? I want less flex and want a hardtop. how hard is it? let me know. thanks
thanks for the quick reply.
To me it seems like it would be more worthwhile to have a hardtop. especially for street/strip. its more rigid and has less flex under body load. It also wouldnt leak after a while. i was thinkin about running through the ttop conversion in reverse. Im just thinking it would be difficult because during the ttop swap they cut the side braces totally off. I guess that just means more welding.
Also, if you're good at welding and fabricating, you won't have to make it "stock", ya know? You'll have the freedom of doing it your own way, making it sturdier than the stock hardtop. Kinda do what you want as far as structure goes, then put the roof panel on and no one would know.
