Re: Half Top ? ? ?
I just cut the bottom off of the main hoop and cut the rear support braces off and welded them back on. Because the roll bar originally leaned forward and the older style rear braces meet the main loop part way down the legs, I actually had to remove over an inch from the brace legs for the new hoop angle.
All it cost me was a little time to fishmouth the ends of the braces, which I found to be quite easy if you just cut it at the right angle and grind back to the line. I've still got a lot of friends and supporters where I used to work, so they made new foot plates and welded it for me.
I'd have rather used the later YJ "family style" roll bar, but they seem to be scarce as hens teeth around here. I've been looking off and on for several years and never found one.
