Default 2002 SC2 convertible conversion

Hello all. Sometimes I wonder what it be like to drive a 2002 SC2 convertible. Has anyone embarked upon this endeavor? I know that it will require major structural modification and custom convertible top installation. Hey, they put a man on the moon didn't they? Thanks to all.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

You will need to reinforce the frame from just aft of the subframe, all the way back to just forward of the rear wheels. 1 1/2 square tube - .093 wall, should do the trick. The roof is a stressed member.

Probably wouldn't want to use a 3 door.

Then comes the fun of building a top... I would probably opt for a fiberglass removeable.

Someone in California did a Convertible conversion to a first gen SC (I think it was a 1994 model year)... a number of years ago.

I think fellow member LowSaturn had posted pictures in one of his threads a few years back.

Lots or reinforcement will be needed- especially in the A and B Pillars....
