    About 3" from where the windshield starts... right behind where the roof body panel bolts down.

    I hope you know about reinforceing the frame.........

    If you cut the top before reinforcing the frame the car will have a strong bow and the you will need to get an engineer to do the measuring and streightening and reinforcements on the car. And if you plan or need the car stretched then do it before the top is cut. If not then that mistake will cost a lot of $$$$$$$

    Thanks so much for the great advice on cutting the top. next question how do i bolt the fiberglass clip onto the area you just cut inorder to hang the top on.
