Okay my CJ4A Asti is getting its roof eaten up by rust, and just my luck here in Malaysia I happen to be the only one who drives one in my area. Any solutions to which roof might be able to fit? Or just custom?

Can the CJ4A hatchback roof fit or the CA4A Asti (Putra) roof fit? God damnit I need a solution quick :cry:

From what I see, no other roof will fit. You will need to find one from the same shape cars as yours.

Spetz is right. You need the same chassis as the one you've got to do a swap. A competent panelbeater might be able to cut out the rust if you get desperate...

How bad is the rust exactly?
If it is just a little bit you can probably just cut it out and weld new metal into its place.

Also, you should never let rust get bad, fix it asap

A few pimples at the front and the middle, few of them burst :cry: the worst part is the rust is seeping down lol.

If i weld small pieces i still have to shape them accordingly right?
