I remember one my mate had as a courtesy car. We used to get it to 40mph (no mean feat in itself) flip the catch on the roof and watch it fly backwards and disengage from the rails so it was like a blanket flapping around behind the car; brilliant fun. Mind you it would corner like a bitch once you got used to the initial roll. Fun Fun Fun things

plan of attack was to remove hood including rear window, then cover with aluminium sheet but still having a opening hood section at front.

http://imagehosting.rodsnsods.co.uk/553a3229d4c7c1.jpg

a few more fixings are needed.

Colour wheel.

Opposite to the colour you use for the best match, but personally I hate green with a vengeance.

How's progress? As for wheel colour how about darker purple than the body, maybe do the same for the name.
