hide them i took them! last time i went to help him was to put a stereo in his s-10 and insted of a mounting kit he had a table saw set up and was making one out of wood. What a nut! so I've been thinking Gronk said that the cars he did were never quite right. I'm guessing here but, i would say if you did a full frame like other members on here you would minimize any flexing problems. I hope you do this it will be awsome!

Personal opinion:
First, it belongs to you and I support your right to do as you please with it.
However, given the rarity of 2 door and 4 door sedans, and the fact that all Eagles are becoming more scarce all the time, I cringe when I see one being drastically modified except to save it from the crusher.
You apparently have the skills to pull this off.  All too often those without the skills begin a project and end up destroying another Eagle.
I'm right 98% of the time, and I don't care about the other 3%.

Well don't cringe just yet Jim. I wont be chopping up the eagle anytime soon now. I recently just had a whole lot of things that demanded being repaired. First I lost rear brakes due too rusty lines. Then had a cv snap on me and then the neutral safety switch went out on me. Before getting a chance to fix any of those the sedans head gasket started to leak. So I figured instead of just doing the head gasket job I would do 4.0 HO head swap while I was in there. Yesterday I picked up a head, valve cover, headers etc off of a 98 Grand Cherokee. Also grabbed some brand new plug wires off of it. Oh and I paid a total of ten dollars for all this from the local u-pick. The guy who owns it has always given me awesome prices. Right now the head is sitting up in the garage and has some jb weld curing in the water jackets.

I had thought of doing a canvas top for my wagon, but where I live it rains about 300 days a year.

I may cringe when the time comes, but I still support your right to do with it as you please.  Good luck with all those plans.
