The door surrounds can not be removed completely and still run the top as a safari because it uses the upper section as a support to sinch the top tight.
So I did get my top in and I modified the surrounds to keep the upper section bolted on at all times and still be able to remove the lower section to run without doors.
Cut across vertically and extend it just past the turn down:
So the modified (top one) matches the original (underneith)
I will get some pics of it mounted on my Jeep. Both sections work fantastic, both with the bottom part on and off. Matches the bend and seals tight and with just a phillips driver I can pull the lower off and run no uppers/windows and there is no bar in my view. (I am tall and long armed and drive with my seat pushed back so that the door surround distracts from my side view)
