    wow again that is just bitchin! i hope to see that in person one day too! such great work too, a real quality conversion. Im really wish the regular D had that rear suspension. so much wasted space is utilized in a great way in this car. too bad i couldnt drive that and have some with legs in the rear seat.


    Let us know when you start a proper convertible D.

    They should had made this an option than to worry about golf clubs (yes, I dont play the sport). Would love a 4 seater D and this matches my wishes!

    Awesome job! Now, who's going to build a "shooting brake" D?

    Too bad JZD didn't get to see this. I think he would have loved to see it and know that it could have been done.

    Actually, you can still fit the golf clubs - the top half of the rear seats fold down making the rear seating area into a huge parcel shelf! So if it was done like this from the beginning you'd have the choice - the kids or the golf clubs.

    I'll get a pic of the rear seats folded down and post it soon.

    Hi Fnzen,

    What make/model is DMCCA using? Sounds interesting!

    Thanks,
    John

    I like the cloth seats in it for the moment, but yes someday I'd like to convert to black leather. I'll keep my eye out for a set of leather Alpine GTA seats and hopefully pick up a bargain someday.

It was also converted from automatic to manual as part of the build process.
    John, old thread - I just found it! Great work! I'd love to hear more about the brakes and power steering (the wife really wants power steering on her car!) Is it electric, hydraulic, or hydraulic on a electric pump? Can you say what rack you used and how much modification it took?

    Question

    Are there any pictures of what this conversion looks like from under the louvers/lower engine cover in the engine bay?
