It’s 100% like a convertible, but without the sun’s misery. 

Also, along with fixing the back window, I replaced the K&N intake with a stock one, and replaced almost all of the cooling system.

Notes.... If you have a K&N in your car, rip it off and throw it in the garbage. For the first time since I’ve owned it, it has midrange power. No longer do I have to floor it up a hill to maintain 50, it will go up at 3600 or so rpm, instead of 5000. Also, I’m 99% positive that the mechanic that did the gaskets put in a 190+ degree t-stat, because it runs a lot cooler now. Or maybe that’s just having a new radiator, thermostat, the right coolant, and fan clutch.
