I've got a few ideas for mine that I'll for sure need help with.  Popping out the two back side windows, tin-ing over those to make it a panel wagon.  Then got an idea for a custom hood, made from 1 Taurus hood and one mid-90's Mustang GT hood.  Gonna be a subtle custom cowl job.

That's what I was thinking, for the windows at least.  On my current wagon, the window seals already seem loose, so I think it's just a matter of pushing on them hard enough from the inside and they'd come right out.  Then just trace 'em and do it up. 

As far as the hood goes, that's a little tougher.  I think.  My vision is to take the Mustang hood and take a section out of the middle.  Cut two lines, remove the middle section, then push it back together and weld it back up.  Then I'd cut a channel out of the Taurus hood as wide as the leftover Mustang piece, and insert that.  Sounds easy, but I know it won't be.  One, I can't weld, two, it's never as easy as it seems.  Gotta get my hands on a Mustang hood, too.

This be the critter I'm after:

Or I dish out like 5 bills for one of these carbon fiber, ready to go cowls.  Looks pretty sweet, but dang, that's a lot of money.  That and I'm not a huge fan of carbon fiber when it's surrounded by painted body panels.  And it'd be cool to have a custom 1-off.

Gotta find the secret to making fiberglass stay stuck to metal.  The site that sells them cowls makes me a little hesitant to go that route.
