Well that kind of blows Curt, but hey shit happens, fortunately your car is black, so a repaint of the roof should match well, FWIW I would avoid trying to blend a paint line at the C pillar, instead I would backtape along the top of the rear qtr's top edge, and hard tape the stripe edge, and tape off the front black painted portion of the decklid in front of the stripe, then reshoot the roof/plug/dutchman area along with the tops of the qtrs, then the only "line blending" would be the soft backtaped edge on the qtrs top line, actually you could blend it by hand polishing, just a thought...

I would repaint the area inside the pink line

Then you'd only have to blend in this backtaped soft edge on the qtrs hard edge body line, much easier than achieving a blend at the C pillars

That is the plan at this time, But I will extend it to the base of the A-pillars as I removed all the seam sealer and I'll also be removing the quarter stripes as one is not centered(not by my hand) this way I can go down the hole top edge the quarter as you stated.

Thanks for the insight  2thumbs

Good afternoon folks

 The roof skin is in place and is ready for body work,(again brickwall) and the quarter stripes removed. That's all I have for now...

Good day folks,

 After getting the roof skin installed, I though that I'd better check to make sure the rear glass still fits, and accurse not. The window was to tight, so I decided to cut out the upper half and start over. This time I fitted all the pieces and now everything fits, with the exception of the trim which is a little tight, but I have a fix in the works... Thanks to moparchris!!

Good day folks,

 Well, I have the trim peace's (thanks moparchris) fitted in the surround. Next thing was to fit the new AMD rear glass and it fits as well. Now it's body work time again. icon_smile_blackeye Ready for round two!!!

 Thank you sir,
 I used the AMD trim set, It was a little tight at the along the lower corners so I made a relief cut and tapped them out a bit.
