THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU DOUG for modifying that targa bar's sloped back leading edge!!! That is the one thing that bothered me most about the side view of the concept!

Now I KNOW either Webasto could make that targa top work, or just make it manual removal. Hey, without back seats, there could be enough room to stow it behind the front seats, maybe?

This worked out pretty nicely, your 2 seat targa with my tail end on it:



I'll have to try for doing the tail of the profile another time, unless someone else wants to do it up to match? -Mac

Peace, -Mac

(PS Doug, thanks for the pic of your stainless overflow tank! haha)

Could you email me the originals of your modified concept? I want to do a little rework of the rear end on both of them but pulling them off the page here the jpg artifacting is getting too much to work around.

Email me copies of the bmp images you worked with, or if you did them in jpg all along, those will have to do.

Thanks, -Mac
