Interesting! Krylon truck bed liner for vinyl tops. Going to have to try that. Nice project by the way.

Used krylon bed coating for the textured top . The pic was taken right after I sprayed it , so the texture is still high , it flowed out a lot better after sitting a bit . It’s a perfect solution ...

That's cool! It looks really good so far. I'm glad to see more Cadillacs around here.

Dale ;

 Howcome you chose to go with the large rear window instead of the smaller Formal window ? other than that let's keep the pichures coming ! Please ? 

 

 

 The factory limo that I am basing it on had a full-size coupe side window .  These were strange of adaptations of existing factory parts bin pieces when they were built new. The factory built limos have always intrigued me. They are just so elusive it’s hard to find one in any condition .
