There is only one other guy I'd trust to install this, Shadowman....
We'd have to work out the details, but I'd trust him...

...The door caps need a bit of fitment and centering the rear window module takes a bit of care...

Shadowman's middle name is CARE! :thumbsup

Can I be on the list for a hardtop? Black with silver stripe. Will your top fit on all the gtx1's? Or does it have to be custom fitted? I live in Malibu California.
Thanks,
Jeff

Kip-

I sold my GT not long after I bought it, and the impracticality of the doors and the lack of luggage space were two of the main reasons.

I see that someone else now offers a functional solution for the luggage space.

I don't want a removable top, but I suppose I could modify a GT(with major surgery) to remove the tops of the doors, modify the roof to mimic a GTX1 top (although fixed in place), and then use this new sealing solution you are developing?

There's another option for the doors pblm, cp. Soon there will be a new & improved butterfly door hinge available. :wink :cheers

Not to mention his last name is one of those hyphenated British surnames.
It's actually Bill Care Skilled-Knobloch.

I understand that the Skilled is silent and not actually pronounced.

Actually, the 'skilled' is pronounced, but you know what I mean....
Sorry. It's late and I have been handling a lot of solvents today............
