Boy, that's soo good...an old mopar behind the Iron Curtain... I take my hat off to you, sir. Carry on, you are getting there.
redo and repaint, or vinyl top... I would just redo it; with your skills it is not a huge project. I would suggest using body panel adhesive to add some metal patches in the larger gaps, and by itself in the smaller areas. The stuff is incredibly strong, and will not require welding/heat, then you can easily feather it into the surrounding surface & prep for touch up paint.Now a little bit frustrated. As seen earlier I replaced hole roof with reproduction roof. At that time i did not have front and rear window trim peaces. Now i have and it is really frustrating to see how badly these aftermarket roofs are made. I massaged a little bit one rear corner of the aftermarket roof to get it in line with c-pillar.
Now everything is painted and there are not much i can do. The whole radius and glass lip angles are all wrong and it is impossible to fit trim without gaps. These reproduction roof skins are so bad that even with moldings it is easier to just make these new peaces from sheetmetal. I did massaged trim peaces a bit to get it in place but it is almost impossible to change radius on the trims.
Windscreen trims are off but i cat accept that but rear right corner makes me vomit. Does anybody have any idea how to fix this?
