Hi there! Attached are some pics of My 92 Geo Metro LSI Convertible... The Red Rocket! Car runs like a Champ, I'm just trying to make it look better by replacing a lot of parts that usually need changing (the convertible top, weather strips, etc). I'll keep on posting pics once I make more changes to it.

PEACE!

Romeo

nice rims & tires love that redline accent
several top replacement options have been covered since i've joined
some go for quality , others get a basic grade top and change it out
every 3-5 years considering it a wear item... the hardest item to replace
(as you probably know) are the rubber weatherstrips, guard them like gold.
inquire everywhere you get the chance as they are unobtainable for our 19 - 20 year old cars
ebay has sets come up every now & then, but usually at a hefty price.
if you junkyard and see even a partial set grab 'em. I'm lucky that I was able
to purchase a second wrecked vert and these items were still intact,
that and i have the space to store the carcass.
T3Ragtop is pretty much our vert guru... any of his posts are worthy reading,
he's almost done everything you can imagine to a vert.
good luck with your project, keep us posted...

Done some good progress. I have swapped the front end to look more like a swift GTI, I think it looks better that way. It took me a long time, but at least it's done now.
