Nice choice of engine. What are your plans for the windshield/frame?

I am still pondering that one.
I am thinking about cutting the whole top of the windshield off and going with frameless top. I am open to suggestions.
I would like to make a roadster cowl out of the closed cab cowl, but my metal fabricating skills aren't quite that advanced. I saw an article about a 32 pickup that someone did that to.
