You would need to find a donor body to do a roof swap.
If you only need the glass panels, I have an extra set with bags that I would be willing to sell.
'78 to '81 Fisher Firebird / T/A / 'Maro  are all the same, other than glass options such as mirrored or smoke.

I used to be indecisive. Now I'm not sure.
I feel like I am diagonally parked in a parallel universe.

I have seen them pop up on facebook from time to time, there is a guy (someone on here can give better info as I dont really do fb) goes by second gen graveyard that parts cars, also in Arizona is Franks Pontiac parts. They part a lot of cars and their inventory is always changing. There's a guy on the performance years forum whom added the t tops to his hardtop car by cutting them like they would have been done originally. A roof swap is not necessary and cutting them in is probably a lot easier. I would think it would be easier to ship parts as opposed to whole roof as well.

What specifically are you looking for? I have a couple of sets of the TTops . As mentioned check out Second Gen Graveyard they have a good bit of inventory and John is a great guy to do business with.

Looks like the original poster wants to install a Fisher t-top roof on his 77, which is a good idea if you want to add t-tops, since Fishers are the best ones.

Of course 77's never came with Fishers. The Fishers didn't come out until about halfway through the 1978 model year, so he needs a roof with tops from a later 78 through 1981 Firebird/TA, or Camaro. A roof swap is necessary if you want Fisher tops, since they were not cut into the hardtop roof like the Hurst tops were. The Fisher roof is a different factory stamped and installed roof panel, different from the hardtop roof, made with reinforced channels formed specifically for using Fisher t-tops. 

I agree that "John D. Lorean", which is the name he goes by on his Facebook page called "Second Gen Graveyard", would be a good place to check for a roof and tops. So, you'd have to be on Facebook to see his page. If you aren't on Facebook, he does have a website secondgengraveyard.com , where you could contact him. He parts out a lot of Firebirds/TA's. He's in California, so that's a bit far from OK, but sometimes he has a truck going in your direction that would reduce shipping costs.

Obviously, the best situation would be to find somebody parting out a Fisher top car locally. Sometimes they show up on your local Craig's List. And I've seen them for sale on eBay before as well, so you might find one there that's not too far away.

The fisher roofs are pretty hard to transport, so you should definitely find one that you can get to in person.  Parting out 1970's F-bodies is not as big now as it was, but they made a lot of them.
