    Aaron, where did you get the plexi window? I've been looking for a pre-cut one for Mutt as the one I have has kind of lost its stiffness. What I've found is cut to fit and it seems like an S10 should be common enough that somebody would make them. I think the current one is too thin (like maybe 1/8" instead of maybe 3/16 or even 1/4 if that would fit in the gasket.) I need to make cutouts for the downbars the go thru but I'll have to do that no matter what I do with it but it seems easier to start with a window that fits to start with.

    I made a paper template then took it to Tap Plastics, they cut it out for me
    use 1/4"... trust me on this.

    73 and older, but this will be removable as well

    Or depressing when I find myself a quart low on ambition.

    I really like the way this is coming together - again - your work ethic and seemingly endless supply of energy and motivation are truly inspirational. This is the most unique "mako shark" vettes on the planet

    I wasn't going to - but these are quite a bit further from the body then the Hooker ones on PF1... that said, using pipe clamps to hold it in place should make it a lot nicer

    Ford guys, never understand them.... first they go on about honey (mmmm and biscuits), then they go full retard. No one goes full retard, well, except Ford guys... there it's pretty much assumed.

    lights.... work



    now to wire the linear actuators... there's a possibility that I'll either be buying more actuators or that they "only adjusted at the factory" means "only adjusted at the factory unless it goes to Aaron"
    in other news, starting to get the interior sealed up as well
