How to Build an Illegal Convertible (And Get Away With It)

I’d always looked longingly at those who lived on farms growing up - those who could hoon around with bikes, quads, and cars, getting up to all manner of hijinx.

One thing that had always appealed to me most was cutting the roof off a car to build a hacky convertible. It seemed so impossible, however - remove the top of your econobox with a reciprocating saw, and you’ll likely be pulled over, if not arrested, before getting out of the suburbs.

I decided to see if it was possible to build a hacked-up drop top in such a way that you could conceivably build it in your garage, and then drive it out to the wilderness in stealth mode, before removing the top and engaging in some no-holds-barred hoonery.

This is that story.
