With the cool weather the last few days, I've been able to do some work out in the garage. Working on the front hoop install - did some trimming of the windshield frame and working out how I'm going to reinforce / trim out the top of the frame. I think I have a solution. I'll fab a piece of sheet metal that will sit on the underneath side of the outer roof metal and then sit centered on the bar - weld it in place with some stitch welds - the "trim" piece will have dimple died holes to tie into the restof the sheet metal work in the interior. Also plan on filling in between the A pillar and the bar. This should make the windshield frame very solid and help to tie the bar into the chassis.
Will need to decide how to trim out the corners
And fill the space between the outer and inner skin
Just a "test" piece to get a visual
