Anyone here ever reskin a roof on a 71-73. My 72 Grandé had a vinyl top which I've got no interest in replacing. The front edge of the roof is well pretty much gone--the part that faces in to the windshield. I've got a 71 with a good roof thats my parts car. I see I'd have to drill out a billion spot welds--I see them in the windshield area--in the rear window area and on the drip rail and the sailpanel. Other than the ones on the driprail--are threre any more on the side above the doors?? I can see any but I dont want to miss any. I'm going to attempt removal of the donor before I mess with the actual car I'm working on.
Thoughts?? Pictures anyone has??
My roof is bad on the 72...but I decided against reskin. I'm going to use POR-15's floor and roof restoration kit to salvage the existing roof and then vinyl over it. I just need it to be smooth and even!
[Yeah if I was going to redo the vinyl it wouldnt be a big issue--I'd weld in a lip piece and vinyl away. May still try and patch in welded section and see how it turns out--but regardless going to grab the roof off the other before it goes to scrapyard (long way down the road)

Question. Would it have been easier to cut the posts and replace in 1 piece? or does that create other problems. I've never seen it done. But the job you did looks great!
Just cruising along minding our own business when BAM!!! The LAWS show up.
I'd like to know as well. Excellent picture... I'm sure that took awhile. I have a better windshield and firewall section from a junker that I'm considering grafting into mine, but was wondering what to do with the roof section.
I'm guessing the roof skin should be one piece to avoid "issues" when getting ready for paint?
