Here is a link to my album on it:

Sportsmobile Forum - BenJJ's Album: Pop Top Restoration

here is a link to my build thread which has some more detail:

It is kind of scattered throughout but starts around page 6. Feel free to ask questions, I will do my best to answer.

How did you measure out where to cut? Did you just lay the frame and center it then draw cut lines?

Start right behind the cross-beam at the cab and just cut the length and width of the rails centered on the van from there. You will have to have the rails and cross bars assembled to get the proper width. I used an air chisel to cut the roof and sawzall to cut the support cross beams.
