Just add extra Body mounts on the frame, like the OG vert frames...
I Dont think its like X frames,Also the body is also part of the strentgh of the car,chopping the top will weaken it ALOT,I would suggest a full frame wrap,reinforced quarters,And some sort of cross beam going from behind rear seat from side to side sort of like in a X position,basically plate everything you could get too,But what would i know i never had a vert :biggrin:

What has X-Frames to do with anything here?
Extra body mounts is great to add on any frame, specialy if you're chopping the roof.

That's the point, you have to custom fab some up.
Extra body mounts is great to add under the doors if you're gonna chop the top off... ;)
