Well I believe I'll make a single cut through the hat at somewhere around 4" lower than the windows. Grind the rivets off holding the section of skin between the top two rub rails, remove and simply replace with a +6 section ill have pre sheared at work. May not need to overlap to keep the rails better positioned and simply bead weld the skin seam every foot or so. The hat will be filled in with 1x1.5 tube sections around 20" long to give a nice overlap each way and bead weld those to the inside of the hat 1inch every other inch. Now for the front and rear, haven't torn it open to see quite yet. Itll be a little challenging I have no doubt but everything I need to do it I would like to have pre cut and ready to damn near install at the time of doing it. I'll have a friend take the pics as we go. He is thinking 1 day after the first cut and I'm betting on minimum of 2 lol. At least this is the quick explanation of it anyhow.
