Khris wouldn't it been better to heat and bend the beam opening instead of cutting it square?

Depends on how far you have to go I would think. In the picture, that hole has already been cut quite a bit. More than I would think you would want to bend it. Further, the passenger side beam is boxed through there. I would venture to guess that you would spend more time fighting it than bending it so cutting and plating just becomes the quickest and easiest.

All the corners will get radiused actually tomorrow morning, it'll get plated, part of the window will actually possibly get filled back in some before I'm done. The whole back face of it will likely get a truss across it. It "should" hold up... Oh and the bottom will actually have a channel to fill back in what I cut out while leaving space for the axle to drop thru it. The amount I had to cut, I don't think just bending the material out of the way would've been possible.

for comparison, here's mine without the lines before tomorrows love session...



And here's basically stock uncut... (technically this is a D44 but the shape of the window used to be the same.)

That rain gutter glass looks so much better than the conversion.

You, me and a few others are all on the same page. Actually I haven't ran across anyone that thinks opposite...

Saw shiny toy guns last night. They are one of my favorite current or 'now-a-days' bands haha.

Awesome show.

Hello little boys little toys we're the dreams your believing...

I'm not like a crazed fan but I dig most of their stuff and their cover of putting on the ritz is really good!

Heading to lunch in minutes and they sound pretty good on the system in my toyota so I might just have to pop them on the MP3...

Yeah, I like em a lot.

I saw them in 2007 or 2008 I think too, at wasted space. T'was with the other chick, but they are now back to the original chick, who is much better. Alot less "angry". Anyway, awesome show.

Only two types of people actually drive a car like that. You either have to be about 900 years old, female, have blue hair and not be able to see over the steering wheel. Or, you have to wear an oversized cowboy hat (not quite a sombrero though) cowboy boots, and have bull horns attached to the hood. The hard part with the last one is to find the Bandit to have him move merchandise for you.

Seriously, how can you own that car without the bull horns on the hood? I'm pretty sure congress passed a law regarding that back in the early 90's.

I've always been partial to my friend's husband's car... LOL, only picture I could find of it really quick though was this one unfortunately which is kinda sad. They also have a new Cadi CTS-V, a class 1 buggy, a trophy truck, a 1600 buggy, etc... They're what you call wealthy.

Nah it's not a 70's elderado with bull horns, and old people don't drive CLASSIC caddys...
