We respect the fact that someone pondered what this good-looking coupe would look like topless, and we respect the work that went into it; but, as always, the end result of custom chop jobs is questionable in many ways.
First, it's almost impossible to fashion an OEM-quality top for a homemade convertible. So, they either end up very boxy with full coverage, nonexistent or they only provide partial coverage, as is the case with this car. Second, trim panels around the opening don't exist for sale and choppers often don't bother to fabricate them. This is interesting, considering there's usually no top mechanism around which to work. Third, structural rigidity is almost always compromised. And, fourth, the final aesthetic often just isn't all that great.
The seller of this car provides only a few mediocre pictures, but we can still see that this car suffers from some of the usual afflictions. As discussed, the top is comically small, like a Boxster Spyder's. From what we can tell in the pictures, the finishing is lacking, too. Finally, the seller claims that the structure has been reinforced, and it appears there is a roll bar present; but we wonder just how rigid it could be...
All that being said, the car is unique, cheap and has a manual trans. If that's enough for you, go for it!

This was always Oddimotive's favorite Accord generation, but we're not sure it needed chopping.
The top reminds us of a Boxster Spyder, but this one's probably less functional.
Front end shows cosmetic mods and that non-matching top/trim.
