Duze Wrote:The rear window and two side windows fitted perfect. No trobules there. I fitted the side windows with black windows tint, since the original windows have a painted black edge to hide the interior from the outside. The black tint was an easy fix to get past this. Tinting a flat window on the workbench is also an easy job :-)

Now the driver and passenger doors is another story. I tried mounting them in the fibreglass door. The size of them was perfect and they would go up an down... But... They are not bend/curved like the original glass. When you rolled down the window it was fine. But when rolling it up it popped out and stayed on the outside of the door frame moving straight up in the air.

But if you could get someone to bend it, maybe in a large oven I think you would be OK. But they are built for racing I guess and isn't supposed to be used with the original doors.
The side windows will bend into place and is hold tight by all the small clips all the way round.

Cheers for the info - guess if I go down that route I'll make sure to get proper shaped ones or do it like you and just do the rear half of the car.

BTW going with the original doors was a good idea considering the fact I can't see you intended to fit a cage with door bars. ©FRP might be strong but not strong enough to hold back a side impact in a worse (not worst) case scenario
