Acme Hardtop and Doors on YJ

I found a good deal locally for an Acme CJ hardtop and CJ fiberglass doors and was wondering if anybody ran this setup on their YJ. Also, has anybody ran this hardtop with CJ/YJ full hard doors? Thanks.

This is the top:





It will need hinges..



and doors:



Latch photo, which I found replacements and strikers for them online:

I believe it's just the shorter window. The guy selling it said another guy with a YJ went to get it and didn't take it because it didn't fit over the sport bars at the windshield, but that everything else lined up great. I'm thinking I'll just pull the sport bars for the time-being then notch the hardtop when I get around to it.

Any chance you have a pic of how you notched it?

Not on me, I can take on in the morning if you really need, but it's not hard at all. I did it with an angle grinder and a cutoff wheel. It's done on the inner lip of the ahrdtop that comes behind the top of the windshield frame and in front of the spreader bars. maybe and inch deep and 4-5 inches wide on each side.

I'm in no hurry as I'm still debating on the top/doors, but if it is something you happen to remember, I wouldn't mind seeing what you did. Thanks.
