    i have a clean mark 1 shell that i think gunnar is going to have a friend buy from me, and i need a title for it. anyone got a title from one of their rusting wrecks i can get for the guy? or can i refer him or gunnar to you? i'd be willing to help haul off the scrap shell if need be. the other guy may offer cash.

    Don,
    What I would need is the roof with the gutter so I can remove everything all the way to the roof flange so that it then could be welded back onto a car. With the roof cut 1/2 in above the gutter there is to much stitch welding and plastic work.

    So Tim, You're saying that if a Mini roof is removed a half inch above the gutter the top part no longer exists? Not so! It becomes a giant saucer for sliding down snowy hillsides.

    I'll post some photos this weekend.

    Wow, that really stirred things up. Looks like Chase, Tim, and I can split Dons shell? James, you may be closer to me, you worked on my carbs a few months ago in Edgewood. I'd feel better cutting up the worst of the worst. Which shell is the worst?

    I'm Brian Campbells brothernlaw. As some of you know Brian engineered and hand builds a subframe for installing Honda engines. One of the biggest hurdles for the conversion is the Honda intake manifolds, hitting the firewalls. So we want to use a firewall as a jig to engineer a solution.

    Thanks
    Tom

    Don,
    So if the roof was cut off about a half inch above the gutter... wouldn't that make it gone?

    Now that we've thoroughly drifted Tom's posting I've started a new one under For Sale. Dismantle that '76. See you there! Don

    Tim, The top I have was torched off about 1/2" above the gutter, also to replace a sunroofed top. Any use to you? Don

    The roof that I need is for my 1966 S mk 1. The roof that is there has a folding soft top and thats not what I want, Tell me what you need for it.

    I do have a roof cut through the post that is for a later mini. Rear side glass doesn't line up. If I had a different one that I could de-skin from the bottem up so all I am working with is a skin then I wouldn't mess the one I already have should some one else need it.
