OK - tired of searching - looking for some pointers on removing a T Top roof section. Trying not to destroy it. I have all the front rivets drilled out and am starting on the back - but I'm not seeing how the roof section will come out - it appears to have the windshield and rear original roof "sandwiched". Any help is greatly appreciated!

Thanks in advance!

I looked in the installation guide and it looks like
1. roof, front outer moulding. Also the 'P' seal

2. 'B' pillar brackets, and 'A' pillar brackets. I am thinking these are plastic? Gray in your pictures

3. Metal 'B' pillar fillers

4. 'H' frame assembly. It is slid underneath a part of the rear roof skin.

5. Front windshield reinforcement

Pat I have a copy of the C&C installers guide If you want me to send it to you as an e-mail .

Great minds think alike - That's what Robertzep2 sent me yesterday. The manual shows "spreading" he A and B pillar 3/16" on each side for the install. I'm not sure that that will be enough "spread" to get the H section out - especially with all the butyl sealer? I'll get it apart - just may take a little longer than I was thinking. Once I get all the rivets drilled out, I'll see how tough it will be to wiggle it out of the hole. Worse case scenario - I'll reinforce the A and B pillars at the door opening and go ahead and cut the B pillar roof section off. Then I have no worries about "spreading" it open far enough to pull the H section.
