    Well... I see what you mean. If you had it your way what would you like to do? Build the plastic over and around the new cage or reform the stock panels to fit under the cage better...

    The trim won't fit under the tubing because the tubing has a plate that bolts to the windshield bracket. The plastic trim has to be cut/notched because there's no way to simply slide it over the cage tubing ends.

    Is there a reason you just don't remove the plastic completely and go with the raw look? It seems like that would fit image...

    Inside the plastic trim... There's plenty of space.

    Although it's nowhere near the quality of the custom stuff Darkknight made, I was able to use a dremel to trim my panels to fit around my ORFab cage. Not perfect, but I think it looks better than not having panels at all.

    Dremels are a wonderful tool

    Now if they would just last longer that would be better. lol
