My thoughts? Make it into a "targa" like the Fiat X1/9. Cut the roof out at
the crease in the roof, leaving the rear part of the roof and the rear
window in place. The other cut would be just aft of the windshield header,
leaving the windshield and pillars in tact. Instant "Coupe GT targa" and it
should help some with rigidity. Add in a little bracing in the trunk area
and a strut tower brace and I would think you would have many moons of open
air motoring...
