here are some pics of progress on the roof


I finally had a few hours to day to get the roof off the car... found the viser to be welded to it so a new visor is needed .. also found a couple problem areas... around the front corners ... half way up the drivers side , and a little on the passengers side close to the front... I think that they can easily be fixed once the new donor roof is installed... also there is a piece of metal on top of the windshield that covers the wood in the front of the car... this piece is in pretty good shape but there are about 8 screws underneath of it that look like they were randomley put in of course this will be covered by the visor so should I just leave as it is? One other thing the metal supprot in the middle has been raised about 1/2 an inch I presume I should put this back in its original location? then I will probably need to make a relief cut on each side to let the body down back to the correct height? I can see welds there so obviously who ever put that roof on made cuts to lift it correct? Any advice or help on what should be done next would be great..
