    Default 1993 Green Mark VIII Convertible

    It's a Coachbuilders conversion, I've heard they made 23 of them.

    Here's a couple photos, I still need to paint the top boot black, but I wanted to get some spring photos.

    If you mean is it waterproof yet, sadly, it's not. The rear window in the top needs to be re sewn and the other leaks still need to be fixed too.

    Here's a few shots of it with the top up, it rained a bit today, I had to put it up.

    Check out those rear power windows.

    It was warm enough to finally paint the top boot black today. That SEM paint works great.

    I finished off painting the visor area black yesterday.

    I also installed my module 8 today, this car needs to be lowered.

    I always wondered why the marks didn't have power rear windows

    I would guess styling, weight, and cost.

    The power windows on the convertible are also smaller than the original windows, increasing the blind spot and cutting down on the visibility from inside.
