Wrong.. all of it. The Brougham windows fit in fine after the top is removed, just put some dum-dum around where the face of the glass mounts to the exterior and refasten windows into place. There will however be holes where the trim pieces from the top attached to the body. There are studs underneath, but the trim is covered in glue, as is the filler panel between back window and trunk lid. Also, where the sheetmetal for the roof meets underneath where the top was, you will need to remove the lead from out of it, and do whatever you want to fill the gap. Anyways. good luck.
