Mine had a vinyl top on it, and extensive rust across the top at the front. I sand blasted it and used my flame spray rig to rebuild it. The top where I extended the cab just required hand bending to make the pieces. One issue with work around the windshield is the pins that secure the trim. Source them before starting the work and lay out, carefully, where they are. If you add material in that area the trim won't set correctly afterward, so the new material has to be hand fit. That is why I used the flame spray.
