    I think BOWTIE did his. I have a bunch of pics on my computer from when he did his, even though your blue go to the center of gravity forum and look for top chop and rear taper (or front, I cannot remember) /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Outside with the sawzall.
    yeah, i cut mine off, but with the intention of not putting a top or doors back on. others have done it to where the doors still work and enough roof to fab up what you need to add a full top or soft top.

    for me an angle grinder with cut off wheels is what was best. harder to reach areas is where i used the sawzall..

    here's my album with a bunch of pictures. /forums/images/graemlins/grind.gif /forums/images/graemlins/hack.gif /forums/images/graemlins/weld.gif
