    is this the car that was on austin craigs a few months ago for 1500?

          The one with the scallop in the side looks so much better than the weismann top.

              No, I bought this in corpus. I saw the one in Austin and contacted the seller but he did not respond.

                      So is this the proper procedure? Correct me if I'm wrong,
                      1. Take rails off,
                      2. Take vinyl off,
                      3. Sand off glue/sand
                      4, Tape off and pull back rubbers
                      5. Use Filler ( would bondo body fill work?) ( how heavy would this be?)
                      6.Smooth out everything
                      7. Prime and Paint. ( about how much paint?)
                      Is that about right?
                      Thanks!

                          Awesome, Have you painted one? If so do you have a thread? Was it a weekend job?

                            no thread and yes. it's a 2 weekend job if you want it to look half way decent
