    Hey all,

    After seeing the front page rumor of Bumblebee becoming a convertible for
    the next movie possibly,I decided I wanted to do one like that,so I took my
    extra HA Bee and did that.Even tho I screwed up by cutting the roof off I
    am trying to fix it,when I did that I hadn't made up my mind then I decided
    to just take the top off,and glued it back together,and will fix it better later.
    But anyway here is WIP so far,got some more to do tho.Let me know what
    yall think.Thanks.

    Nice!
    Insecticons said I should do something like this some weeks ago! xD
    But how does the windshield stay in botmode? Because it´s fixed at the roof o.0
    Anyway, great start! The Camaro as a convertible looks gorgous!
    Do you gonna paint him this red/orange like, or will BB stay yellow?

    Update yall, I am working on HA Bee to make him both a convertible and hard top coupe.
    That way its the best of both Bee's,I plan on making a attachable cover that covers most
    of the bot parts (legs) in car mode.But I have to take measurements first and make it.I
    should have the convertible top cover ready to paint by tomorrow (monday). As for the
    hard top I pretty much finished except painting,but that will have to wait as I am low
    on money and have to wait till next week when I get paid.But I will keep yall updated till
    I finish him.

    This will be sweetest custom I've done when finished.Also thanks everyone for the
    comps.Later.
