Does anyone know anything about making a bugeye hartop by cutting the top off a
Last night I helped a friend pick up a Bugeye 'project' car that he just
bought. It came with a lot
of miscellaneous spare parts, and also included a complete rolling Nash
They guy he bought it from , said he had the metro, because he was going to cut
off the top and use
it on the sprite. Apparently it uses the same windshield glass as the early
sprite, and after
looking at the top, it does indeed look almost identical to a bugeye hardtop. I
guess the trick
would be figuring out how to handle the rear glass.
In any case, has anyone done this or seen it done???
