If you are into repop parts, Bert's, Brattons and Snyders and other repop parts houses have what you need to make the conversion.

Didn't those articles provide enough photos for you? What are you wanting?

This thread is an answer to something Iíve been considering. Iíve got a 30 coupe with a rumble seat. Iíve had the car for over two years and have never used the rumble seat. Iím seriously considering removing the rumble seat and converting to a deck lid. Thanks.
