It's been a long process, but Jay Dean at the Nostalgia Ranch has finally stitched the top back together on this Ford shoebox. Not only has he lowered the lid, but he has also eliminated the B-pillars, giving his happy customer a custom hardtop.

Jay's philosophy from the start was to cut, stand back, and weld it together once it looked right. We left you last month with the A-pillars welded, the B-pillars gone, and the rear of the roof looking like we should have never started. In this issue, Jay is going to show us that he knew what he was doing all along and mate the old roof and some new sheetmetal into a flowing form. Follow along and get some tips to apply to your own custom.
