Welcome! That looks like a really sweet project. I love fastbacks, but couldn't bring myself to cut up my coupe.

It wasnt the plan, but the coupe needed soooo much work, that it wasnt really that much more to do it. It needed a whole new floor, quarter panels, it had no fenders. Really the best part on the car was the roof, and ive used almost all of it fabricating parts.
Thanks

Wow...that takes guts and a lot of welding/fabricating knowledge.
Love the shop...I'm jealous.
It looks like it's coming along nicely....

Quite the undertaking. Good luck, it looks like you are on the right track! I'm loving the disco paint scheme too. The car below is a converted coupe too.

How do you plan to build all the substructure under the rear window?

I'm having a tough time just making little patches for the rusted parts of mine.

I'm hoping to get some ideas how to make the patches from scratch.

Nice project! looks like great craftsmanship as well.
Where do most people get the FB roofs anyway? are these new? it would seem to me that unless an original Fastback was completely destroyed by accident or rust that it wouldn't be smart to cut the roof off of it.......

Im using the peices from the coupe and modifying them to fit what is needed. Ive used almost the whole skin from the coupe for fabricating panels and brackets. i havent repaired any rust with patches, I have just replaced everything with new parts and pieces, there was toooo much rust to repair.

All of my car is new sheet metal. Roof, quarter panels, deck lid, truck. I would never cut a roof off a fastback. It would rather build a new car from the roof down, than destroy it by cutting it off. (but thats just me).:thumbsup:

Well in that case, I might have done the same thing. I am definitely going to keep an eye on this build.
