Thanks for that. Still couldn't find his "chop" photos, but
plenty of other interesting stuff there. Anyway, I can tell pretty easily how he went about it, and from some of the other "conversion in progress" photos on these pages it's pretty obvious that great minds think alike. Obviously I include myself in that category, I'm just usually too modest to say it out loud.

Incidentally, speaking of Rolls and Bentley styling (and model conversions) some former MAR readers may just recall I came up with my own idea for a Bentley SUV a few years ago, based on the Minichamps Flying Spur sedan, and personally (being totally unbiased and unprejudiced, of course) I believed it was more stylish and interesting than the Bentayga they eventually came up with. But maybe not many people would agree with me (a guy on the Bentley stand at a motor show was distinctly sniffy about it, but mainly because Bentley "would never really contemplate anything as undignified as an SUV". Hah!
