Can't really find any pics on the net of how people do it so I decided to just go ahead and try to do it.

Started out by cutting the B pillar and getting the center piece cleaned up.

Plenty of movement available in the A pillar to get the roof line level with the frame

Next I set the A pillar for the line I was wanting. Looks like it will need to be about 4.75" lower in the back to get it right.

Started taking the B pillar tops down little be little until I got the height correct. Then just started slowly grinding out the saddles to get the middle section level and in line with the front section. This is time consuming, but not that hard

Then I cut the back tubes right above the bottom cross brace where they are still straight. Not sure how I'll put it back together. May join the tubes back together with sleeves, or I may just use cage tubing connectors.

I just propped it up online with the center and it looks pretty good at this height.

I need to get the B pillar saddles completely done and tacked in place before starting on the C pillar modification... next weekend.

A few more misc pics

I used a 60 grit paddle wheel to clean up the center section.
Used a saws all to cut the B and C pillars. Then used a cut off wheel to make finished cuts.

Took a break and fried some white perch too.

Fun part will be finding a blue paint to match the octane blue powder coating unless you're going to have it powder coated?? I have tried everything to get a matching paint and can't... even the touch up pen from BRP doesn't match it

Finished putting it back together. I used 2" roll cage connectors from SuperAtv to reconnect the C pillars, actually makes it easy to just unbolt that part if I need it out of the way. Ended up being about 5" of drop in the rear.

Got all the welded areas primed up. Wasn't that bad of a project, I'm happy with it.
