Lightbulb tj custom hard top help

Whats up Jeepers, winter is a coming and Last year the soft top worked, but only because I had room in the garage for it. this season I dont. Since I first got the jeep I always wanted a hardtop but I feel for the 800 clams to get a fiber glass one, i could do a custom diamond plate one. top sides and rear. I have always fabbed up some stuff as im a mild machinist and welder, but before I start what I had planned, im wondering if any one has ever approached this before? rather see other peoples ideas and where they got stuck.

I was going to the put square stock all around the top of windshield rail and roll bars and weld them in. then get the diamond plate on top and kinda use carraige bolts and wing nuts so i can still take them off. as for the sides and rear I would double up with tinted/smoked plexie glass in the middle for windows. basics hinge for the hatch and shocks to hold it up. going as far as a wiper, later on... the top would have to be two pieces. or make a diamond plate tonneau cover. and not have back windows.... either way im fine with it. and would make both some day. throwing out some ideas and in next week ill throw up pics and drawing plans.
