    Just a thought the rear window on a BMW 6 Series Convertable is verticle and retracts.

    Happy if I can help you out with any ideas you may have. Or I can suggest a few things? Not like a Cobra, at any rate.
    Maybe push it outside, so you can stand back and take a photo from the side and also front and rear three quarter views.

    Thanks for the offer but I need to get more of the car components together, such as rear glass, headlights and rear lights. But at the moment I am trying to get bulkhead finished and door seal edges so I can get some paint on the metal (I hate damp weather). Then I need to make the door/window frames so I can get the side glass in the doors, but suggests are more than welcome.

    Funny you should say that because I have been looking at car headlights for a couple of months. Anyway last week on the way to work I had to stop at the traffic lights and I started to stare at this Alfa thinking about whether the headlights would work or not then I looked up and some old girl was grooming herself enjoying the attention as I looked on. It would have been cruel to tell her that I was more interested in her headlights! Quite like some of the Audi lights and the new Jaguar XF lights look good, cost?

    Audi headlights and new jag one's will be silly prices at the mo, even second hand. If it's the led's in them that you like then you can pick the kits up cheap enough.
