it sat up too high for me. so i had to drop it. im going to graft it onto the doors and panels also, so i didnt want it to be too high abouve the window

cut the column hole out some to allow it to drop about an inch or so

i wanted to keep my defrost. so i cut the crap out of my stock top piece. making fillers inside the truck to keep those 4 screws alligned
