Currently Im back to back tours in the middle east. And my car is back at home in the states. But when I come home I want to put it under construction.My main question is this;My car has a viynl cover hard top that is since been weathered and is starting to tear.Is it possible to strip the top and convert it into a hardtop?I am wondering if i can take off the viynl cover and padding, and weld up whatever holes it leaves and make a smooth hard top so i can paint the car...Please write me and let me know if you are a cadillac owner and have any experience in this.
