    I have definetly tossed that idea around, the reason thats there is when the window rolls up theres a gap in the front for ventlization, then crank it the wrest and it slides foward. I actually like that it does that. I have played around on photoshop and with it gone it does make the window alot bigger. Ill mess with it some more. Thank you for mentioning that, i appreciate the help buddy.

    Julio from moonlight customs interior in san jose (1-408-217-3896), i paid $750 for the seat. He did a very nice job, it is very tight, the lines are super straight on the tuck and roll. He bascicly built me a new seat. The one i had was to narrow and didnt fit the car very well. I feel i paid a very good price for the amount of work accomplished. Im very pleased. Thank you julio.

    I said: Can you thin out the back side of the door window? I think it's fairly thick and might help your flow? Just guessing - your call.

    I like the way that window sounds too, useful and neat. So my next idea is to thin out the front of the rear window, so that the front of the frame hides behind the door, and the glass / rubber for the rear window is immediately behind the door - no metal (or very little) visible there. I presume the rear window is fixed, right? Just make the frame a little wider with the extra width being toward the front, and leave the door alone.

    Again, your call - just trying to help. Cool car.

    I have part of an incomplete one, that I used for mockup, so that I did not damage my good one. I'll check around for you.

    That's cool. Are the '34 the same as the '35?

    Never mind! I see your's are 34, mine 35, and they are!

    The 35 plymouth gauges actually are different, there 2 seperate 5" round gauges unlike the 34 as a whole unit. The 34 looks more classy to me. I have 35 ply gauges if anybody is interested.

    I thought mine were '35, but based on your description, they must be '34. Would you mind posting the '35's?
