That's a mean-looking car all of a sudden. I think Centurion turned evil

Could the centurion be extended into a station wagon shape? Allowing for a sleep area to be made , allowing the car to be used for travel.

Sure. The magic is in the hands of the builder. Keeping in mind that the roof towers at about 40-41 inches, and there isn't a ton of room between that, and the top of the frame especially where the rear differential would be. As a wagon, two people of larger stature sleeping side-by-side might need to be wedged in with vaseline and a shoehorn.

It was the easiest windshield removal I've ever done! Basically none of the urethane adhered to the glass and only marginally better to the window mounting flange.
-

-
-
Using a couple of pieces of memory foam does a nice job of evenly distributing the pressure across the windshield while it's being prepped for installation.
-

-
-
Halfway through the process this interesting bug stopped by to inspect the job.
-

-
-
With a "brand name" (MMM) of urethane applied to the mounting flange the windshield was ready to be set back into its home. A new rubber trim seal was also fitted as a little extra protection against leaks.

Another easy job completed and the job site Manager approves the work!

It's early November and we're getting a last blast of heat!
This is good and this means a few more test runs for Centurion in preparation for the 2016 Green Grand Prix.
-
Running around New York this summer to the car shows were excellent opportunities to meet new people, hear new ideas, and set a couple of new personal records on the public roads.
-
Anything can happen between now and next year, but barring any unforeseen circumstances, Centurion will be at the next Green Grand Prix.
-
And she is running really, really good!
