Ok, I bought a 2 seater, got it fixed up and running. Brakes still need some work. No big deal. It stops.

I didn't like how tall the rail is so I chopped the top off last night on a whim. Now today there is NOTHING I can do about it. I don't have any 1.5 " tubing. My buddy with the bender won't answer his phone.

And to top it off I may buy a 4 seater this weekend so tearing into this car was pointless.

Is this normal behavior? Am I over reacting? My wife thinks I'm nuts. I think it'll make the rail more attractive to another buyer.

Happy Thanks Giving everyone.

no disrespect but yeah.....s....l....o....w d.....o....w........n. even your handle says slow down jimmy jack.

I have seen rail that look too tall also. I even got this lil grass hopper looking thing that had way too tall of a top. since I was selling it I didn't care.

Just get some more tube, take a chill break with a bubbler and you will be good. Good luck!!

Well the four seater I was hoping for sold so now that I made my rail a convertible I'm gonna have a friend take over the project and make it look really good. He thinks he can even get a third seat in for my little guy. Theres plenty of room the move the seats forward.

I'm still looking for a 4 seater in the meantime tho'. Maybe after this weekend some will pop up.
