Help! Roof and Pillar replacement

I have a 1999 XJ and am in the process of stripping it and a donor to replace the roof and pillars. I've seen some older posts about it but can't pull up the pictures. I would greatly appreciate it if someone could guide me to or has some pics or video of this type of job. Thanks

I donít have any video, or pictures but Iíll be talking my roof (pan) off the sheet metal drilling out a lot of snot welds & dealing with body glue actually doesnít look half bad, if you have any questions let me know basically you can take apart a whole vehicle if you have enough time & spot weld drill bits!

Re: Help! Roof and Pillar replacement

Jmg222, thatís one of the more uplifting things Iíve seen today. What a repair. A tree fell on mine last night during a storm and Iím trying to figure out what the heck to do.

Did you do the work yourself or hire someone? I would expect something like this to cost several thousand in a body shop.

Really wondering if I should consider saving mine like you did. Itís a Ď99, rust-free, manual trans, fully loaded, 4x4, about 215000 on the clock.
