    We get the glass from a local guy here in SoCal. If anyone in the SOCAL area needs the original rear safety glass (NOT LAMINATE) window you can pick my old one up for a 6 pack.

    BUMP, I am curious about this too, was the roof cut above the rear window?

    Care to enlighten the rest of us prospective choppers on anything else we should know or everything!? hehe

    Thanks,
    Ronny

    Sorry Ian, my infant baby girl and school has been taking up alot of my "car time" so I've been PMing my phone number out to guys who've been asking questions. My apologies brother, sorry...

    But to answer your question, yes, we cut the cat walk loose and moved it up a little. She'll be at the GNRS so if anyone wants to take a peek!!! My buddies took her for me because I just haven't had the time with work, school and family.

    And thank you ALL for the comments and motivation. It makes all the time and effort (and freaking money) well worth it!
