    I wonder if there is a cabriolet kit for a 66 F250?
    Build one... . You seem to have the skills...

          That's a big step! I'll bet it goes very well from here on out.

            I'm confused is there something wrong with the top of the truck? Or maybe bronco removable top conversion?

                Welcome to the club - for me it is a good sign when I am only confused!

                It seemed to me to be easier to replace the roof than attempt to build a new drip rail and fix all the missing metal

                There was a remnant of a drip rail on the driver's side which predominately channeled all the rain water into the cab through the holes in the roof!

                New donor roof, ruff cut and ready for final fit. I separated it at the back along the original body seem so I "should" be able to spot weld it back together along the flanges.

                This has resulted in one major issue!

                I have this piece left over

                Which has me contemplating a lower roof line! Hopefully, I will come to my senses (or more accurately borrow some from someone else) and just put it back together at the stock height.

                        I am afraid Randy (66 F-100 EcoBoost) has set the bar WAY TO HIGH for any mere mortal to compete in a comparable high end build! His truck is a beauty and should be the benchmark for that year/model.

                        I really don't want another "pretty" vehicle. I have 1 1/2 now and it is a lot of work / worry. The truck with be strong but most likely not pretty nor as detailed as the wagon. I am trying very hard to stay away from the "slippery slope" as I would also like to make it an "extra cab / short bed" deal but I just don't posses the skills to do that level of customizations myself and I don't want to triple the build budget for custom metal work on the cab by a pro.

                        But hey - I have some junk parts and lots of wire and gas so there would be no loss in ruining those parts trying things out.

                          You could call MP&C! They have the skills and clearly don't have anything else to do.

                            I think you should chop it as short as you are you don't need the head room anyway. Plus you can save money on interior you won't need a seat just padded carpet. But you will need that extended cab to get your legs straight or you will look like a cartoon charter on a RF shirt. Good move on the top that looked like alot more work than replacement.

                              I'm in the 'keep it stock' camp. The metal work can be done fairly easily, but the glass, channels, and wing-windows are a whole new ballgame.
