Try to save the lip on the halo when you have to chip it off with a air chissel and then re-attach to the Z06's roof.

You'll also need to replace the upper rear tub.

Lots of fun, nice project.
Yeah the FRC tubs are discontinued, but we both work for a gm dealer and found one for a vert that we are gonna use

Lots of fun. Biggest pain was redoing wire harness in rear, thank goodness for the Tech2 in figuring out everything.

Post up some pictures.

Love the color. Are you sure he doesn't need a little more horsepower? Awesome!
