This is my Bradley GT.  I have made some mods...like cutting off the roof!  I did this because the plexiglass doors and rear windshield were broken or cracked.  Since I never drove it with the doors on I just decided to make it a roadster.

Below is a crude Photoshop of how I would like it to look when finished.

I intend to build a tube structure to reinforce the pan and add some protection to the otherwise plastic car.

 Here you can see the windshield frame trimmed to shape.

 

 

 

 

 

Here are some pictures of the windshield frame reinforcement I am building.  Because I have removed the top there is no structure to support the wind load of the windshield.  This frame is made of 1/2 inch square tube and will be glassed into the original fiberglass frame.  It is also incorporating a place to mount some larger more standard power mirrors in the lower section.
