Default How do I cut the quarter trim for the roll bar?

Would someone mind posting up a picture to show me how they cut their quarter trim panels to fit around the roll bar please. Thank You.

Follow the dotted line relative to the measurements provided? lol

I have a panel from an NA on my back deck it appears that was cut for a similar rollbar. I'll snap a picture and mobile upload that shiz to facebook before i get out of town so look for it in like 30 min.
It was cut TOOOOOOOOO much though so look at the template and this panel for an idea and trim slowly or you'll be pissed because it'll be to large of a gap like Y8s said.

Have you done the carpet yet?

This guy Andrew Savington kept coming on to me, so I had to disable my account because it was getting creepy.
