    Looking very tidy. I used a 5mm perspex for the rear (outer) window, again cut to a home-brew cardboard template by the shop. Think about using a tinted glass/perspex window; Why? Lots of tall 4x4 cars have high mounted headlights, that can dazzle you through the rear view mirror, even on dipped beam. A 'tint' will take the edge off.
    Keep the updates coming.

    Thanks Steve. I'm not sure I can use anything that is DOT approved safety glass, but I do like the tint suggestion. California is notorious for the 4x4's and idiots who put brighter bulbs in their headlights without a cutoff.
    Thanks,

    Nic.

    Hi Nick. That's a very clever solution compared to making a fully enclosed 'tunnel' as per the original. You've done an excellent job.

    Have you decided how the new inner window frame will attach to the bodywork?

    Thanks! I try to be clever... "try" LOL

    I might just go with the original tunnel attachment idea and screw it to the body so I can remove it if I need to get to the fuel cell for any reason. I'll put a rubber or foam gasket between the part and the body to seal out noise, moisture and smells.
    Thanks,

    Nic.
