Might be possible to recoup some costs by s

What kind of work is involved in retrofitting the vents in favor of quarter windows?
The door opening is taller for 67 68 must be cut down ,it is to long and must be shortened ,it is the same shape but i have to make several parts that are different on the 67 68 .
I have to make the complete quarter vent or quarter window opening .if you do not have somthing to measure from placement of the new pieces is very hard to do

I usually wind up getting 500 - 600 back selling off the pieces i dont use ,the windshield post are usually the first thing to go because you can only get them in kit form . I sell a lot of the rockers ,for some reason they put their better rockers in the kits. Front lower door posts sell fairly quick also . But these parts are 67 68 ,the 65 66 parts i think would sell quicker as you dont see them for sale very often . Problem is you have to drill them loose from the parts you would need to keep

I may go ahead and try a conversion if I come across a cheap coupe in Arkansas that isn't too rusty. I've already done a lot on my current coupe that I don't think I want to convert it.

Nick sanded his butt off today haha!
I fit a lot of the interior panels just to make sure they would . That 65 66 interior bracket wasnt even close to correct ,it is mostly 67 brackets but i was able to make them work . I am going to fit all the inter in the back even the seat .some of the panels are only setting in place .

With all the hours of work , and a large amount of parts money is this done for yourself. Or are you going to sell it someday. Could this be a full time job for a person as qualified as you are. Could this be a $40,000 car in time. Sorry for the questions I watch too much car t.v.

No ,this is Nicks own personal car ,he plans to drive it .
The hours are really not that much ,actually far less than a restoration . There is almost no body work ,we have been on this for only about 7 days and soon we will be ready for paint .
We have around 4,000 in new metal and the car cost me 800 so we are into it very cheap ,it is just the small amount of time we spent and all the fun

Nick almost has it to bare metal ,just the passenger door and the cowl left . I spot welded the roof to the drip rails and filled in the old quarter window holes ,it will go back on the rotisserie soon
