Installation: Cutting the Opening

Prep Tip: In order to keep the vehicle free from debris, we recommend temporarily securing a plastic drop cloth around the cutout area inside the vehicle so that debris will land inside of the drop cloth and not in your vehicle.

What you’ll need: Angle Grinder/Jigsaw (Cordless tools are strongly recommended), File, Sealant/Anti-Rust Paint, *Plastic Drop Cloth, *Safety Glasses

  • Make sure to wear appropriate safety gear to protect yourself from sparks, metal ricochet, etc. such as safety glasses, gloves, long sleeves, etc.
  • Cut the opening of 14.5” wide (side to side of roof) by 13” tall (front to back of roof) along the outline as closely as possible.
  • File any newly cut edges and ensure edges are smooth to the touch.
  • Seal the newly cut edges with anti-rust paint or sealant and allow them to dry for the recommended time.
  • Clean away any remaining debris from the roof to prevent rust.
