Last time I spoke to Don from WCCC was roofs by Jan as he understood it. So either way that is great news as I am waiting on a roof. Would take a good to f they have them but not sure about those.
Then I need to find someone to install it for me.
An y suggestions here in the Northwest?

Thank you, I called him today. He is pretty slammed with full resto jobs but we discussed it and alternatives for my area. Nice guy and he is only maybe 2 hrs. north so might end up there for other things too. I appreciate the into as I didn't even know he was out there.

I was just looking at Dynacorn web site. They list the roof skin # 3843A. But no quarters yet. Hope they come in soon and are good quality I could use a left quarter.

I could sure use that roof panel. It looks like it will be a cut n weld in job instead of drilling out all the spot welds. Is that correct? Anyone know on that?
I watched the WCCC video a few times and besides the having endless time and help seems like a major pain in the ass (sorry, butt). How come we have not heard more about this as it is less than a month till Jan. 2019. Wow, how is that possible. It was just Y2K not long ago.

Based on the pics of the new one, it looks to me like it's intended to be a replacement for the factory "skin" piece, which means drilling out the spot welds and separating the old skin. I like doing it this way since you don't affect any of the car's structure, and there's no trimming or guesswork needed to get a proper fit.
