I like it! Of course some paint and decent wheels would go a long way, but I give it a thumbs up! The beautiful sweep of the fender really shines without the roof detracting attention. I think the finished product would would be awesome!
The Camaro uses a reinforced inner rocker to strengthen the chassis, you would need to do something like that or buy the complete frame that I have seen for sale but that goes around 10 large if I remember correctly. You also might have a bit of a problem getting it insured as you made a car into a convertible that was never intended to be that way. Most likely you would need it done by a professional fab shop with experience in that area. that way should it ever fail the insurance company may be able to recover their payout from the fab shops insurance. It doesn't look that bad to me, go with 17" rims, drop it 2" and give it a decent paint job... maybe.
