    Comment: Hi Pete, just a daft question why did you reskin the roof? Thought it may have been easier to swap them out completely with the frame and all then graft the whole replacement onto the car to save you all the work removing the original and skin. Don

    Comment: If your drip rail is removable it's better to take it off to do the repairs you need to do, then re-install it after your done.

    Comment: Hey I was wonering why your friend Pete didn't graph the whole top in like a chop lower job?

    Comment: What's the name of that angle grinder you're using?
  • Author: diyautoschool
    Comment: NO! With all the inner structure and the proper fitman of the front and back windshield and also lineing up the side windows/doors it's always much easier to reskin then to replace the whole roof assembly. The only time you replace the "WHOLE" thing is if it's a roll over or bad collision where the inner structure is ruined.
