Nice glass work! Bet your neighbors love the smell of the resin
(i'm guessing you're doing polyester, not epoxy...)

What's the difference in weight with the oem roof and fiberglass? That's a genius idea too.

What about doing a factory RA aluminum roof skin instead? Probably pricey, I know, but alot less work if you could find one.
Great build btw, im loving the progress.

Thanks man, I was originally wanting to buy a carbon fiber version which would be more of a cookie sheet cutout, where you cut everything but 1 inch all around, then glue the roof on top of the existing version, but since I had decided to save money on roll cage and cut the roof out entirely, i decided to try and tackle a fiberglass roof. I work with fiberglass as I build custom mobile and home theater subwoofer and speaker boxes, but working on a flat plane is a little different. Plus its what you build not what you buy right?
