I have got a workmate who plans to chop the top off his 1980 Honda Accord 3 door. Can this be done? Its got rhe liftback hatch - its got the pilarless doors. I know its not a ford, but its got a similar build to an early Laser, i think?

Of course it can be done, take a chainsaw to it and anything will come off.

IF it can be done, he has to do a whole lot of other s**t to it, to strengthen it...
a guy at AFD did it to his XF and was telling me about all the other s**t he had to do
