ok i was told that i can take a set of regular hardtop doors and cut the top sections off in the same spot my t-top doors are cut. then change the guts & glass with mine and i will now have t-top doors.

good thing 85-86 parts are hard to find i have alot if you need something what you need to do is get rid of the old style window scraper and mioris and use 87 up will fit right on and work better the 86 ones are like 120 for one side where you form?

easiest way to do it is to take your trim off your t-top door and use it as a template for where to cut the new doors
