I have a plasma cutter. I could make it a roadster quick and easy. Other than that, there are probably many custom shops that would do it, but it will be very expensive, you're better off selling your car and buying a convertible.

yeah he is right I have a convertible shell that I am beginning to part out that I would sell for $1500 only think that will be missing so far is the trunk. Then you have everything you need. New top is installed also. Rust free and solid all over.
