    Nice job. Window shapes look good and proportions look good. Rear window position looks to be perfect. You putting the vent windows back in?
     
  11. Yup vent windows are going back in. Just have to get them cut down.

    If funds allow, buy the date coded glass that is correct for your car. The date code is called a "bug" in "slang language." It would just add another little cool factor. Also keep the windshield center post.
     
  30. Cool thanks that's something to look into. Yeah I planned on keeping the center post
