So taking down the top right? If so it is simple. Pull the windows rear sides and unzip the back window half way (so the top is still zipped but the side are not) undue the clamp at the front header. Then there are sewn in channels on the door surrounds just like the rear windows. Pull those out of the track then fold the top back.

2nd question- Either wheel spacers or new rims. Most on here will say they hate wheel spacers and they are unsafe. Honestly they are not, along with they do not add anymore stress to the axle or related parts. So if your in love with your rims now wheel spacers will run you 300 or so bucks for 4. rims will run you for steelies around 300 shipped for 5 with less backspacing to push the tire out farther.

Know nothing SPEAK on everything

If you haven't gotten more out of the insurance company than you deserve, then you haven't screwed them nearly as much as they have been screwing you for the past xx years.

Spacers will run you $200 not $300 and stick with Spidertrax. Look for rims locally and you may be able to find them cheaper.
