    not sure if i`ll even use it, but it would be cool to do, looks like theres about 3 ft taken out of it , would have to have someone fab up some sort of a wall and make a window out of lexan

    Theres something you don't see everyday. It's sort of hard to judge, but will it cover the back seat at that length? I'm guessing that's why it's that deep anyway. Cool find though. :thumb:

    Looks like it might be a little close to clear the back seat, but you might get lucky. What are those side windows made out of? I've been pondering something like that. If you were closer, I'd come take it off your hands. It would save me the work of doing it.

    Cool. If it clears the back of the seat it would be really cool.

    Man if I was closer and had a welder I would no problem. It's always better to practice on someone else's rig before you do your own. :D A piece of square tubing and a little sheet and you should be set. Are you wanting to make it removable?

    well i`m wondering if it would be worth making it removable, it would be nice if i could make the window open a little too, feel like giving me maybe a rough idea of what to do?

    someone please just tell me if i should use this or not:D

    anyway that i could make like a removable wall for the back, or should i make it permanent?

    when i measured to see if it would clear the seat, it looked like it was gonna be real close, is it possible to mount the seat a few inches closer to the front?

    what should i do for a window? anyway to make it open for a breeze would be cool

    i think you should make a wall with 2 layers so you could slide the back window down into it and put some holes right under where the bottom of the lexan would be when it is up and use some hitch pins to keep it up when desired
