Default Hitting my head on CC roof! Lifting roof suggestions?

I keep hitting my head on the CC. Is there anything out there on modifications (ala raising the roof) before I start to cut and weld?

Am I the only one that has to duck under the roof to get in? I'm only 5'11. It is a standard CC!

I was thinking of cutting the A pillars and welding in some square steel to the make the correct elevation. I may be able to just loosen the rear B pillars and rotate it up.

The roof is already at a slight angle to for runoff but only cutting the front may result in too extreme of an roof pitch and will probably have to cut the back ones as well or just put in a filler there.

I was just wondering if anyone out there has done this before I get started...

I'm only at 5'9", but a friend has a stock cc, and i hit my hat a few times, on the other hand that guy is 6'6" or better ,and owns 2 smart cars go figure I would think you could maybe raise it a couple inches by using a spacers under the front where it connects to the front cowl, then add something to the bottom of the seat brackets . just a thought

I'm 5'10" and I have no issues. I don't see that a couple more inches would make a difference. How are you getting into it? Lol
