XJ= unit body wouldnt you want to cage it or some shat if you are gonna remove a big hunk of sheet metal?
also i believe Can-back will make custom soft tops for you, so will places that do work on sailing/pleasure boats

Well, you certainly should do A LOT of research before you attempt this. you need to figure out what you are going to do with the top before you figure out where you want to cut. I would recomend this for a 2 door, otherwise it will have to be tiny like that red one. You Do not want to mess with the door structures, trust me on this, especially with a unibody. You will want the entire structure to be extensively braced before any cutting is done so nothing settles or shifts when it is cut. This will not be a cheap deal if you have someone do it for you, especially if you have it done correct with body work etc.

chop

Hey, I thought about doing this for a while too. But, realized I didn't really have the time for it. But, get on NAXJA look for a guy named Beezil. He has a really cool rig, and sent me lots of pics of his project. Good luck. DAve
