why am I seeing tops of components above the current cut plane?

I made this custom plate W-shape for my as-built from hell and for some reason I can see the top even though it's over six feet above the cut plane.  I changed another column (a W-shape from the Imperial library) to the custom and the top is not visible.  It's cut like it should be. 


I should be designing by this point and I'm still as-builting this project.
