Looks like one of those buggies on Fantasy Island. Of course without the Super Swampers and the green paint... :D

Howdy! I forgot to tell ya on Saturday that I do like this setup. Might try a couple of layers of cheap undercoating. It can be built up pretty thick if you want. Might try putting some padding on the cage to help kill the sound transfer from the rig up to the new lid. John

What pieces do you need? I know I have the corner glass, but I can't remember if I have one or two of the side glass. If it's one, it may not be the right size, and I can't remember off the top of my head if I have the big or the small glass (ebay mix up from a few years back). And if it's two, they may not match. No rear hatch glass, no rear hatch at all for that matter. Either way, they'd go good with the machine gun.

My yearly meeting appearance may actually be this month.

As for the glass I'll take it all. What's your brew of choice?

Those pop-out windows are cool. Do they fit the older tops?


I installed the vent windows into my 68 back in the eighties. The top is off of a 73. SOR shows three different sizes of side glass between 65 and the 77 model with the vent windows. I know there is at least two different type of weather stripping for the windows. I think the same thing holds true with the back corner windows. At least two different sizes.
