Targa Tops/Convertibles
Making targa tops and convertables can make-or-break a mods looks. Just follow the instructions below to make a targa top or convertable.

Targa Tops:
1) Take out the glass

     1mm and one more line from the B-pillar on one side to the B-pillar on the other side.

3) Take a rotary tool such as a Dremel or a hack saw and slowly cut along the lines that
     you made until you are through and can detach the rough.

4) Sand or file where you cut the metal until its smooth.

5) Touch up with paint where you have cut and sanded the roof.

6) Put the glass in after the paint has dried then take an x-acto knife and slowly trace
    along the where the metal was cut onto the "glass" until you have cut through it.

7) Sand the edge of the glass where you had cut with 400-1200 wet/dry sand paper.

8) Now take a toothpick with some glue and put a little glue around the windsheild and
    attach it where it belongs.

9) Then glue the rest of the "glass" back in.
