in other words, yes, you can. Been there done that. It's still a little tricky, but it can be done.

ok Found a pic of the roof as a rear deck:dancing You can see the reveal on the left, its about the same size as the side of the hood. the decklid was made from a cut up 67 decklid and a scrap piece of roof, to eliminate any body lines. Lots of cuttin and welding , but Im happy with the result. The generator clears the decklid by a 1/2 inch.

The top of the quarters, hammered them over a curved dolly till they were the same radius as the top reveal. the seam is about in the middle of the shiney black area.

It actually took two roof sections to be wide enough to fit , the line about a foot away from the left side is where I grafted the added section on. In hindsight I could have just had one seam by cutting past center on each half. This pic was after reworking the lefy side , there is now a matching seam on the right.
