Yeah, that is the part that mates to the WS frame. I haven't had a chance to test fit the top yet, but thought that part of the top looked kinda strange. Can you snap a pic of the front edge of your HT, and post it? Thanks!Is that the part that goes over the windshield?
It looks strange.
Just download them to photobucket (it's free), then cut and paste the IMG (image) tag into your post. It will work...I promise!If I could post a pic I would but the forum dosen't let me.
Thanks for the pics guys:thumbsup:
I could be wrong, but I think the metal top and doors on the pre '75 CJ's were a factory option, and that a company called Orville or Meyer also made them. Through all of my searches for more info on '5 HT's, I have also seen several different models, but cannot recall some of the other name brands. Check out earlycj5.com, and if you don't have an account, you can create one easily, then do a search...you'll be shocked of the info you will find there.What kind of top is the all metal one?
I'll get a picture of it tomorrow.
It's a Jeep...you are not supposed to wash them...they will melt!Can you go through the automatic car wash with an Acme top?
Does anyone do it?
What kind of interior pics do you want to see? Let us know, and I bet that between all of us that are active users, and own one of these cool tops, we can hook it up!I'll be working on my Hardtop hat has been in storage as soon as possible. Would apreciate it if somebody could post some pic's of the inside.
I am starting to think that this could be a different Acme mold, although the unfinished edges really do look awful compared to the finished ones. I inspected mine closely after seeing all of this discussion, and mine appears that it still could have been a hack job, but looks exactly like John's.maybe this was another mold type acme used..
to me it looks to unfinished to be factory
does your cut appear factory or home done.
What kind of fitment problems have/had you experienced?Yes Mine is like Brocks. That explains a lot of fitments problems I have.
Looks like it was hacked but the rest fits nicely, I cant see it sitting up another 2"
Are your bottom edges sealed also? Mine are not.
But the doors fit and rear hatch fits nicely
Hard to say but mine looks like it has a raised section in the rear like STK's
On the front edge that marries to the windshield frame, mine appears to have screw holes spanning the entire length...as if that is how it was secured to the WS frame.you must just through bolt your top through the lip of fiberglass and then into the windshield frame?
Would you be so kind as to post some pics of your's too?I have the same longer inside lip on my Acme top like SKT and John.
Mine is thru bolted using the visor hardware. Seals tight with no leaks.
