|cboy||Sounds interesting. Did you build the wood framewook from scratch? We'd love to see some pictures of what you are doing and how you are doing it. Might even help so folks can better respond to your roof building question.|

Aluminum will be a bit more difficult of you need to do any welding. the flat sheets of metal will require some skills in shrinking and stretching as well as some wheeling. on a rod replace the wood with formed square tubing as this works better..
glass will require some molding skills to do succesfully..
your choice and it comes down to your skills as well as the types of tooling you have to work with..

Might be a little hard to do with a four door.. But it can be done..
