don't know, we'll see what it looks like once finished. Unusual to build it out of metal.

OMG!
Not sure if that spurs me on or makes me want to give up.
That has got to be the most beautiful seven iteration of all time.

Trev is a true craftsman, he does it for a living too recreating and rebuilding some fantastic sportscars.

He's also a nice bloke too!

Hi Craig, You're such a gentleman. I do have some more photos which I must upload into my archive. I can't seem to find the time to work on it at the moment but it will wait and it will be finished. I'm glad you guys approve of what I'm doing to my car. The seven is not an easy car to get a good looking roof on it. I hope I succeed. ATB Trev

Looking bloody fantastic so far Trev. It makes me drool and green with envy at your skills every time i see it.

I cant even do a basic hardtop had to resort to a soft surrey top.

However when we move house will have bigger garage so will print pics of your car as inspiration and get on and make some doors

Bring your coat. And a sweater. And gloves. And boots. And a toque. Long underwear is recommended.
