Hi,

I'm going to fit performance plastic windows in my track car over Easter, anyone done it before? Any advice?

I'm especially looking forward to the large rear window..... looks like fun, but do it on the car or off???

Any help gratefully received.

Thanks

Gerry

Welcome to the forum. Sorry I can't help answer your question as I've not done anything like that before but have had to replace a rear window/hatch on a 944 and it was problematic to re-align. I would suggest trying to fit the plastic window without removing the unit if possible. Best of luck.

I know there are lexan windshield and hatch glass available that can be urathaned in.. Rear glass separated from frame (this part is challenging) then lexan installed to the frame ( urathaned / fasteners ) The guys here usually do it off the car..... We made rear quarter windows that just screw in flush for aero and easy removal...

I recommend pre-drilling any holes through acrylic/lexan so it doesn't split when putting through a fastener..

You can paint a black frame or vinyl for looks... I recommend painting from the inside out...

Note clubs may sanction rules for braces on plastic windows and possible retaining clips for front windshield

Cheers

Thanks the pictures are good, no problems here on bracing or clips, the Classic Sport Car Club require the profile to be unchanged, but otherwise free.
