Help with mounting liftgate on hardtop

I finally have the roof and tailgate on my truck. I got the liftgate back today from paint, and noticed that it doesn't quite have the same profile on the top edges as the SW rear door does. I think I saw pics of Chris Davis' truck that had a fiberglass liftgate with hard top, but can't seem to find the pics again to check the fit. If anyone has any pics, or has seen one mounted, let me know if there should be a gap in the upper corners between the roof and liftgate.

Thanks

Chris

Thanks Read, that will def. help. I found out my biggest problem was that the fiberglass liftgate has a different profile at the top corners, so it won't fit :>(. I am now on the prowl for a series liftgate.

I thought so too, that's why I bought it. I talked to Chris, he said he used a metal liftgate.
