Default OK, who's first?

I have been seriously looking at my two back side windows and was thinking how nice it might look if if was blended/painted to match the car. It would give your back end a longer look, plus adding more paint might just might it a one of a kind. Have not seen any car with this mod yet. If you have done so, or seen such, please pass on feedback. Gary

I don't think that is a good idea [V]--for safety as well as other reasons. Remember what happened when you lowered your car? [:0] [B)] Here's what I did to my back side window which works for me (decals can be removed much easier than paint if you don't like them). Good luck.

Gary, you had to bring up my springs again didn't you? (LOL) man, I can't tell you how much I LOVE that rake now. (no more rattles!!!) I'm thinking of jacking it up another 3 inches and then putting on some slicks on the back. Maybe I'll stick on a blower on my engine too. [?]Gary

I thought who was on second and what was on first. [:I]

I don't know about that Gary, we all have a pretty good blind spot now.

Of course if you never drive it, then what does it matter, right?

Removed to two rear windows of PT and install a kit consisting of metal panels.

RetroPT,
I like the looks of your retro delivery PT. Paint job is nice too. Did the window replacement panels come as a kit, or did you have them made? Also noticed your rear door handles were shaved. Nice touch there too.[?]

Here's a cheaper idea on the black out on the rear windows. Use vinyl, it can be easily applied, it's cheap, it can practically be matched to your paint, and it you don't like it, take it off. Enough material to do both sides would probably run about $40-50 if it's metallic, a little cheaper if it's a flat color. I have done various things like this on other cars.
