STK Sedan Top Structure Installation
- Install top structure using front-to-rear measurements (A-pillar to C-pillar) as well as windshield and backglass measurements from your car before the original top structure is removed.
- Reattach (weld) rear quarter window upper picture-frames to rear of top structure.
- Drill (with 5/16" drill bit) holes in drip rail flanges every 5-6 inches so the drip rails can be plug-welded to the top structure.
- Test fit top skin (without drip rails installed) and position until desired windshield, backglass and side gaps are obtained. Vise grip and tech-screw in place at front and rear pinchwelds.
- Push drip rails up under top skin edges until they are in the correct position front-to-rear and height. Mark body with paint pen at front and rear edges of drip rails so drip rail position can be determined once top skin is removed.
- Remove top skin and reposition/plug weld drip rails.
- Apply SEM Panel-Bond adhesive in a 1" wide ribbon to the inside edges of the top skin and the now-welded flanges just above drip gutters. Install top skin and pull down into drip gutters with vise-grips and short sections of 3/8" diameter rod. Spot or plug weld front and rear pinchweld flanges at windshield and rear glass openings. Allow panel bond to dry 24 hours.
