Default Plastic rear windows

With the new rule for 2015, I want to see if we have enough folks interested in going to lexan rear windows to try for a quantity discount. You can email me at jwheeler4@kc.rr.com. If we have enough interest, I will contact a couple of suppliers and see if anyone will cut us a deal. If not, I will proceed on my own to find the best deal for my car.

I have two sources. One is in K.C., who does lots of Prod windshields, and has a very attractive price.
More to follow.

That is the question. I think a slightly thicker (than the min requirement) window might be the answer. It might need an aluminum upper reinforcement between the two hinges. The bottom would still bolt into the metal deck lid. The other alternative would be to make it removable, with pins at the top and bottom. Don't know for sure.

OK, I know I'm a Mustang guy but I have an idea. Permanently attach or dzus fasten the lexan to the window channel and just pin rear metal part. It is securely fastened to the car, I guess it depends on how much access you want or need.

Most of us have fuel fillers, batteries or cool suit coolers under the hatch so being able to easily open it would be nice.
