    Brian has the roof welded and did away with the drip rails.

    The welds were ground down and than he added a patch over the factory lead joint

    Well now I know why my trunk lid opening isn`t right anymore, the guy that (a pro?) removed the lead and filled it in with filler. Now where the lead was around the trunk opening, it isn`t shaped right anymore... Looks like Brian is doing a much better job than my guy did.
