A mate of mine done this to a Astra estate.I would use an estate model with 2 doors.Cut the roof off just after the front seats and weld a piece of metal in behind the seats so you have the cabin area.Then you have to make the bed of the pick up.It's not as easy as you think.My mate scrapped his in the end as he got board of doing all the work.Shame really as it would of been fun.
