    Very nice Tillman, looks great! Take some pics from further back when you get a chance. Did you just have the targa top painted also?

    Looks really good - excellent execution. Made up a quick little edit to match the B-pillar to the rest of the window trim to carry the theme of the glazing color uninterrupted.
    Either way, it's nice. Great job!

    Looks really good. Interesting how the colored top and no louvers affects the lines of the car. Wish F had made a colored top an option.

    Horrible! Keep it stock! :mad:







    Just kidding! :)
    Very nice I must say! I love how this amplifies the car's window/cabin lines. May I inquire, if I send your shop my louvers, will they modify them? At what cost? Thanks!

    A couple of responses:

    1) That's the stock top, sanded smooth and painted to match the car. The metalflake gave the shop heck, but it looks factory now.

    2) I don't know if the shop would make more, or what he would charge. I know what I paid, but that was before he knew what kind of labor was involved. He's an Fchatter, I would suggest sending him a PM or email

    Thanks for the postitive vibes. Now if I can only get the scratch for carbon fiber interior parts, a 4.0 litre engine, and a suede-covered steering wheel... :D

    That is really nice Tillman.

    Looks really clean!

    Congrats on a job well done.

    The guy who did the job has a nice 348! :)

    Wow, that looks great! The painting of the targa and the window make the car look much newer.

    Back from the dead... Just an FYI, overcast days are MUCH better for photographing people and cars as there is much less contrast (more even lighting) and glare. The lighting you have in those pictures is fine.

    I really like the look - it's a smooth transition from the front to the rear.
    Plus, you have the option to take it off on a nice sunny day. Can't beat that.
    Enjoy.

    Excellent and clean look. How did they modify the plastic louvres? Is there a number to call to see if they'll modify additional louvres?

    How does it look close up? I know the GTS rear windows have rubber seals which look like they're still visible throught he open louvre area?

    Veddy, veddy Intelesting. In conjunction with modded louvres, open form of wheels seems to create negative space on the upper rear. trompe l'oeil - fool the eye.

    I mean that in a good way.
