john, are you going to do the a-pillar reenforce like my speedster's? it is pretty stinking sturdy.
I am adding an extra "L" section to smooth out the back edge of the pillar. This will act as my reinforcement. I considered radiusing the bottom rear corner into the door, but it didn't look right when I mocked it up. I want to keep a sharp corner between the top of the door surface and the A-pillar.

Since I will have a roof attached to the top of the windshield (unlike some people I know [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/biggrin.gif[/img] ), I will need less reinforcement than otherwise.
