Hard top Fitment - 75' Hard top on 80' Body?

Hey All,

I ran accross a decent deal on a hard top and doors from a 75 cj5. Would this hard top work on my 80' model cj5? I know there are subtle changes over the years so im unsure if the top are interchangable. The top is rusted slightly in some spots but i believe it is fixable.

The changes are more than subtle. The winsdhield on the '75 and older are 4" wider at the top and sit more vertically. You'd have to do major changes to the top or swap to an earlier windshield frame to make it work.
