Truely an awesome look! Great job !!!

Are you going to build a rag top for it, or is it a fair weather ride only?

I found a guy that will cut the stock glass to fit. Or cutting a lexan one is always an option if all else fails.


A word of caution. A friend of mine in FL built a car similar to yours with a chopped and raked windshield. His was a low buck build with a plexi windshield on a rusty POS chassis that I sold him for $200. The next owner wanted a glass windshield, and a 'pro' broke 3 or 4 windshields attempting to cut it down to size.

I was playing around with the concept of a lift off hard top with drop in windows.
It would be hard to build but it would really make the car alot more useable. We shall see...

(IMG:style_emoticons/default/biggrin.gif) The lift off hard top looks sick. Sweet!!! (IMG:style_emoticons/default/aktion035.gif) Now to get the price for these down to under $20,000.

You are putting this model into production aren't you???

I added a layer of F/g last night:

I sanded the humps down this morning. There are a couple low spots but the shape is getting pretty close. I should be able to get it straight with one more glassing session, after that I will finish the bottom and edges.

Is that piece going to lift off or be hinged (for engine access)?
Are you keeping the retractable wing/brake widget, or is that gone now?
Nice work Dana. Loving this!

Yes it is going to hinge. I am going to figure out how that will work after I rebuild the metal around the engine bay.

The spoiler is gone, it was fun while it lasted but it was heavy and created alot of drag. Now I am using a Ferrari F430 diffuser for downforce.

I have looked hard at the C-GT engine lid. I will probably be bringing in air from between the humps for the intercooler and venting the engine bay out the back of the car. I have to see the lid complete before I can tell what will look good.

I really like this project and the lift off roof will be very cool.

Today I made a wood template to ensure that I install the windshield at the right angle after I chop it.

Then I cut the thing off so I can modify it. Looks pretty cool huh?
I also test fitted my Getty F/G bumpers, they will need a little work but are pretty close.

It is so tempting to just toss the windshield all together.
Nothing like having to wear a helmet to go for a drive! (for some reason I don't think the wife would approve. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/biggrin.gif) )

I really like what you are doing.... this is definately one of the cooler "mod" builds I've seen. Plus... I'm partial to Subies (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)

With that.... I have to suggest you go a different direction with the wheels.

You've created (or will create) a low, fat stance for the car, and filled the wheelwells with these ricey, skinny-spoked wheels. I'd like to see you go with a more solid looking, less ricey wheel. I personally like mesh style wheels, but there are thousands of other options. Yea, you may gain a little weight, but I think that will be a small sacrifice for such a radical design.

What are you going to do with the "interior" portions of the car that are still painted?? Getting them all sanded down?? Just curious.

Are you sticking with the stock WRX TMIC setup? I was going to suggest a nice STI TMIC setup.... by the looks of the engine bay, I think it would fit nicely. I really don't think a FMIC would work with the radiator.... although that would be pretty cool.

The wheels in the concept are just for fun, these are the actual wheels I will be using, they are off of a 996.

As for the interior I will remove all orange paint and paint it to match the rest of the car.
I will be running a custom top mount intercooler, the new lid creates a ton of space for plumbing. Intercooler plumbing should be kept as short as possible so a front mount intercooler is really out of the question..

I hear ya, but have to say I like the looks a lot better WITH the windshield like your concept photo. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)

That chopped/raked windshield, and the dual humps behind the cabin are exactly what really makes this thing WAY cooler than the other 914s without the targa bar and windshield that I've seen. Your design is working!
