Default Ever wonder what your C4 looks like without floors?

Please no negative comments about why cut a C4 up yada yada ... This is a donor car for my 82 vette and it was a registration nightmare and and tons of issues with car like huge cracks in firewall from improper jacking to half a$$ rear tub replacement that body shop used bondo to secure the tub and everything was involved was falling apart.

This one was better off not being on the road.

Nice pics. Could we get one from the front looking back? And what's the exact year of it?

If you were wondering the riser was cut out as well and the the "A" pillars have been cut, so only thing holding the windshield frame in place is the fact the doors are holding it up. Next cutting will be the "B" pillar and the whole remains of the rear clip will be able to be removed in one section.

It will be turned into a bare rolling frame, I did it this way so the suspension is intact for measurements for my conversion on my 82 frame.

the car is a 1990

Here is where the "A" pillars were cut and then whole windshield frame was lifted and firewall cut out.

I was thinking more of the area around and behind the seats. Have always thought of adding some pop up roll over bars...

Kind of a different angle on the last photo of your first post...

Thanks
