Exterior Discussion / ModificationsWant to change the look and appearance of your Dodge Challenger? This section is for the discussion of any exterior visual modifications. Examples include wheels, custom paint, grills, etc.
This has been my number 1 mod idea from the time I got the challenger. I think it would look great! Just have to find a shop to do it. I think the inspiration came when I saw year one start with those new Trans-Am Bandit builds...ugh. Another amazing car I would love to own...
DropTop custom I'm sure is more than capable, but with charging well over 10K for the conv. job, I'm no where near impressed by their work, especially in the trunk area and rear cover... in any case, the search continues for a good shop.....
I didn't see the finished product on page 11, definitely turned out better that the convertible jobs that they do... but where are the tops? I wonder if they are still having development issues?? I would go with tinted glass...
Although they look cool and are a blast when driving..... they are a PITA for air and water leaks. I had them on a 82 Vette and I will never have them on a car again. You can break into a T top car in a NY sec. Just not worth it.
1. If anyone wants to steal your car they will find a way.
2. Structural integrity is a concern - late model camaros (third gen) if you drive one wheel up a driveway and leave the others on the ground you cannot open a door.
3. In regards to two - I still think a partial t top is best - leave the structure still in the car and have a t-top like the 1978 camaro where part of the roof is still in the car. (Pic below)
4 I don't know if anyone would put resources into it.
