Can someone photoshop a roof on an open Hebmuller?
I'm looking for the guy who photoshopped Guido's ex coachbuild.
I think it was shortened
Thanks for your help.

What sort of roof were you thinking of? Something different to the Norwegian Hammerworks hardtop Heb-alike? Post a pic for me to work off.

I knew I´d seen this idea before somewhere - courtesy of the very talented Pascal Meslet. Or did you have something else in mind?

Sorry for the delay,
the roof should be a little flatter, could you try?
Not that there is anything wrong with this roof! Smile
Thanks for the pics.

Here you are. The screen is chopped very slightly, to get the best proportions.

Just my opinion, but you can't improve on der Wiger's steel roof...

I´m certainly not trying to better the Wiger! (I feel bad about using the sideview of that car actually). I´m just trying to create a possible alternative - after all, why copy whats already been done? I have pictures of a coachbuilt Peugeot Coupe from that era with a similar roofline to above, so I´m trying to keep it in period. A removable top would also need to be light, so making it smaller with less steel would make sense maybe.

OhMyGodmg: Blimey - tough crowd! And even my effort is better looking than the original Heb coupe!

I don't think you should have used der Wiger as your base, anything else is just down from that...

IMHO I think your back window is too big JD, the small back window is one of the characteristics of the early cabrios.

What about something like this one?

Looks like someone married a beetle and a Morris Minor.
Oysten got it right,that's the benchmark.

Close George - that was a Morris Oxford roof. Looks just as bad as the original coupe!

Oysten definitely got it right, you can´t fault it, but as I said, if you were going to build your own Heb coupe, would you want to simply copy what he did?

If I´d started with the side view of a Heb, then the result would have been the same. It´s just a good side view.
Point taken about the back window, but I´m no fan of that Morris topped thing. It looks all kinds of wrong to me.

Where´s VintageVW anyway? How can he drop me in it and then disappear!!
