    It won’t fit easily! That’s why it’s stuck in the States!

    Johny if u took the roof can I fit a door in your shell? Mike has a door for me.

    Jon's doors have been on the list to come over in one of my cars for ages so they get priority and there is already one roof to go in the car that's waiting to ship. I think a roof will go in if you cut it tight to the posts although I haven't tried. There is actually very little room for panels in a zed and 2 complete doors pretty much fills it up. We will have to see what space is left.

    Can you put extra roof skins on top of the roof perhaps?

    I think this one is still on the internal frame, on top may be a challenge. Mike has prev struggled to pack it successfully which is why it’s been there so long.

    Ah yes, but there are actually 2 additional rollers that John is interested in.

    Everyone talk John into it and he shall he become the Z shell KING, and by default the mule KING as well. LOL

    I bet we could cut the skins off and tac weld to the existing roof over the sunroof cutouts. Bet that would work.

    I reckon thats the best approach, it takes about 3hrs to strip a roof skin off working from underneath so as not to mark it.
