Where are you? Greg Zuch in upstate NY is the one who did the conversion on CatVert for me. It's a big project to do it right and not something most body shops are going to want to take on.

There was a done one on CL in CA cheap last month, He was asking $6k and you could not get one done correctly for under $16k considering you have to purchase 1967-8 Mustang rag-top to do it correctly. Looked like a really clean Western car.
