That thing is going to be different!! [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/thumbsup.gif[/img] [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/chillin.gif[/img]

I just wonder if a Notch body would have been better suited for the purpose though? [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/Idunno.gif[/img] Just thinking of the rear... or maybe you've allready thought about that too? [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/wink.gif[/img]

For the trunk it would have been easier, but I wouldn't have ended up with the roof line that I wanted. Like 1slo3 said i would have still needed a Fastback. Plus I already had my old 71 Fastback and got the orange 70 for free. <G>

I am planning on using the stock Fastback decklid and just laying it down to line up with the new rear cowl. This will leave me a good sized space between the decklid and the rear window that I plan on using for the cooling air intake.

Something like this...
