Rear window template
Marking the rear window template with the new roof's cut lines. We do this to make sure we
cut the old roof off while leaving enough of the pillars on the car to mate up to the new roof.
Marking the new roof cut line on the left rear window template
Transferring the cut lines to the car.
We're careful to mark and cut so that we leave enough material to trim back for a perfect fit. You can
see that we marked the cut a little generously. We don't want to have to "fill gaps", but if necessary
we'll tack some filler plates behind the surface gaps to close them up.......
