filling top 30 coupe

Hey guy,s anybody have a journal on filling a top on a 30 ford coupe. I found a formed top thru my so cal dealer here in vegas and it looks pretty good but I was wondering what everyone was using for a top support and if they used the wood header over the windshield or had to make a new header of boxed tube. I saw a web site where a guy used one inch boxed tube as door headers and used half inch boxed tube with shims to replace the wood bows of the original top. sure need to get started on this baby so any help would be appreciated.

You can do it either way, take your pick. The steel is probably better, but you then have to fab the stuff.
