Looking at the hue on the boot of the car, it very well looks like a PS job to me. (No offence )

Sorry man, but that is UGLY. The guy who did this PS should try and remove the rear seats and shorten the length. If he can do that, he might have something

although a PS job, the detailing effort spent is really laudible, especially in the 2nd photograph.

Not too bad, IMO.Even if its a PS job, its done well. Would be interesting to actually have these ( if ever) available in the market.

Actually the car doesn't look, nevertheless it is a very good attempt by whoevers done that job. The boot looks more like the NHC's. The width of the boot should be reduced and that should do it I think.

A convertible conversion is not simple. The chassis needs stiffening since the 'cage' is gone. Unless there is a big market on the person doing the conversion really knows his marbles it may be tough.

An excellent PS job nevertheless, as that is what it appears to be. A 'paperless concept'.

Looks a bad PS job to me as well, however linea is already short of interior space with converting it to two-door one will further increase the chaos.

Nice PS Job!
The Soft top convertible would have looked much better than this IMO.

Looks well done, am not a PS expert so can't make out at first sight, but the effort is visible and must be lauded though the Car itself does not look that great as a convertible due to the steep windscreen angle.

Ugly.
Why do people even think of ruining such a beautiful beauty by their bad PS jobs.
