Arrow Crazy Idea.

My dad had a crazy idea, and while I'm probably not doing it.. it would probably work for someone out there who lives where it shines forever.

Anyways.. basically, remove the hatch glass, keep everything else. You could fab up a way, using the hatch shocks, probably, to keep the rear hatch secured (since the glass won't be there).

With the T-Tops removed, and the rear hatch replaced with just a rear decklid w/ spoiler or whatever floats your boat, you'd have a pretty interesting close-to-convertible feel.

Essentially, imagine removing all the black, keeping everything else.



****ty photoshop, but I'm not going through the trouble of remaking the interior through the glass.

I didn't mean to come off too harsh sounding. It seems sort of similar to the sportback which I think just doesn't flow with the lines.

These cars gave an open air feeling, while maintaining the structural integrity needed for harder driving conditions. As with those vintage vehicles, the RKSport Sport Back gives the Camaro an open-air ride with no loss of valuable rear seating room or trunk space.

The Sport Back's rear window was designed to be easily removed from inside the car. The simplicity of the Sport Back is that there is no drilling, modifying, or cutting of the body for the installation. The Sport Back simply replaces the rear hatch glass. A qualified body and paint facility will be able to provide paint matching and installation. Complete detailed instructions are included. WILL WORK ON CAMARO AS WELL AS FIREBIRDS.

Cost: $875.00

if you could make some clamps & weatherstripping so the glass would be removable, that would be cheap too.
