So got the roof panel looks like the 998 windshield is 80" roof at wimdshild is around 87" so nee to remove around 7" so when i get to it ill try to post pics showing what im doing to narrow it

If it wasnt for the turret hole i would just cut it out of the middle, gonna need to set it on the truck and will asses from there

That will be a heck of a lot of cutting and aligning and welding.

Im in no rush to put the roof on , gathering information and reference materials and some more parts, once i have enough parts ill strip off the 4 man soft and cha ge the c pillar then put the roof on my car lift so i can pic it on and off the hummer to make modification and fab whats needs to be fabbed

I did find a few good refernce pics on google fir the roof mounts and how the divider is mounted along with what the c pillar looks like

Only place that looks like it will take some thinking is the b pillars

Speaking of the M1114 roof, did you happen to measure the width?

I'm trying to figure out the width to the side bends, the width of the side bends and the width at the outer edge of the side bends, to use that info for an AN/TWQ-1 Avenger HMMWV 2 man aluminum roof.

I measured my 998 windshield frame at 80" opening on the roof is 87"

When you look at the 1114 pics of windshield you can see there are wide extensions on each end

Once i get around to a test fit then i will know where im cutting the roof to narrow it

I am missing the blocks with the bolts for the tubes to hold the seatbelt to the tube

I have been to eastern with my humvee usually deal with Billy, hatch airlift bumper winch mount and bunch of other stuff came from there, they even did my temp senders for me in the parking lot
