With the purchase of any full Lexan Kit, you may deduct the price of what a pair of the "Standard" (std) quarter windows for that car would cost - from the total "kit" price.

510 (9/16”) Stainless Bolts 50
Lock Nuts 50
5 oz. Tube of Adhesive 1
Note: This kit will install one window.
1). Remove old window from the vehicle. Clean the window track, scraping all of the old adhesive away to insure a good bond with the new adhesive.
2). Trial fit the rubber spacer, cutting away any excess length. Most windshield installations do not need the rubber across the bottom, as the Lexan will lay flat on the body area in front of the dash (Normally when there is no cowl panel behind the hood). The rubber may need to “taper down” at the bottom part of the sides (options: belt sander works well / or use a sanding block with 30, or 60 grit paper, or grinder) for this to occur. Next, using the weather strip adhesive, glue the rubber to the window mounting flange and clamp until dry.
3). Laying Lexan on the installed rubber spacer, trial fit Lexan to the opening until satisfied. Ultimately there should be 1/16” – 1/8” gap (for flush mounting) between the body and the window at all areas of the opening. Outline the window mounting flange on the Lexan paper (use masking tape if paper has been peeled back) for making and spacing of the mounting bolt holes (3 ½” to 4” spacing is common).
4). Using a 7/32” drill bit (oversize allows for heat expansion), drill the mounting holes slowly going through the rubber and mounting flange. Countersink all the holes in Lexan to fit the bolt head (CAREFULLY! THIS DOES NOT REQUIRE MUCH PRESSURE).
5). Clean away all shaving. You are now ready to paint the inside edge of the Lexan if a finished look is preferred. Tape off the width wanted for a painted border. The area to be painted will need to be sanded.
6). Bolt the window in place top and bottom, starting in the middle and working out to the sides. Tighten the screws so that Lexan is snug against the rubber. Over tightening will make the Lexan appear “wavy” and could cause splintering around the mounting holes.
