Filling a roof/ top opening...after searching for a station wagon or van top to use as a donor  with out any luck, I ended up with one from a salvage yard that had a flood sale. Paid   $32  for the top..i cut it off at the pillars so I would have the bracing if I need them, Photos are in the rough cut fitting stage

Looks like it'll fit pretty good.  What vehicle did it come off of?

Tom....  So far I'm happy with the fit,  it  laid down well... and  I thought 6 ribs might look odd but I believe I will like the look of the top..  I removed it from a 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee, I  Still Need to cut it to length

Top looks real good FATnLOW.  I like the look of those flat top ribs vs the round top ones.
