I think it is a non RS version, so there was no reverse Mohawk to begin with.

I'd like to see it with glass tops. Also, where would you store the things?

This is why I wouldnt do it. Any issues for people that plan to keep it a long time will be hard to find spare parts.

I don't hate it but I don't love it (especially for the price). It looks like they did their homework on this and did a good job. I think I'll keep my solid roof on my Camaro though.

Reverse mohawk is on every hardtop not equipped with sunroof, regardless of trim level. The RS package includes body colored roof-ditch molding.

Oh ok, I thought I saw one without a reverse mohawk, thanks for clearing that up.

I'll take two! And as for the "mullet" comments,T-tops have been around longer than mullets. I have had Datsun with them, Corvette, Mustang, Hurst Olds Cutty, Monte Carlo, El Camino(Custom Datsun 240 T's), Camaros and Trans Ams and I never had a mullet, thank you!
Hahaha , As for the price, its a bit high, but I guess the mods to have them make the price seem right if you want it done right.

I'd like to see some picks of the undercarriage. I wonder how much weight is added do to stiffening. Looks great but I'll keep my leak free warrantied sun roof myself.

Nicely done but with this car built for a solid roof I would be worried about the integrity of the top now and the over all impact on the car (i know it was already said). still +1 for an awesome job.

Novel concept, but sorry, not looking good. If I took that $6500, and added it to the price of an SS coupe, I believe I could afford a convertible where the entire top goes down, meets the current safety rollover standards, and all under full factory warranty should it leak.

And 20 years from now, who's going to have seal parts for that when I want to restore the car? Nah...I'll pass.
also..the "high strength" steel used in the safety cage design has been compromised!..don't think the "general" would approve that...just sayin'!

That looks great. Should have been a factory option. So much better than that vert that is supposed to come out.

I loved the T-tops on my 1986, however I think I'd have to see this in person to render an honest opinion. I do like the reverse mohawk on the 5th gen. I think I'd do a sunroof or vert first. 6500 towards supercharger / engine mods might win out here. I agree I'd like to see B-pillar delete and glass tops from GM.
