If you're going to make a metal top, remember to leave the spoiler out of the design. <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/lol.gif" alt="" /> Will you possibly be adding a rack to the agenda?
Secondly, unless you're getting these Monroe shocks cheap, are you wasting money? The oil Tokico 1987 shocks are still on my Raider and don't leak. They still dampen a little and may be replaced before they rust away. I liked the Rancho units I put on a 95 Tracker I had briefly. FWIW.
