You need the frame because you will be removing the roof skin that is in the car already and replacing it with one that will fit the glass
By the looks of it you will need a new seal too, which is impossible to get a hold of

If you have a glasstop car though, and this is to replace a cracked roof it is much the same kind of work as replacing a windshield or any other piece of glass on the car
Keep in mind that it is a 2 layer piece so it will crack very easily if you apply pressure in the wrong places

Yup, I think without the frame, especially if you're inexperienced in fabrication, this will be a fail.

Which is why when you buy these, they are cutout with the roof/frame work intact, and nobody usually buys/sells them without it because of how much of a pain it is and how integral the framework is.
