One peice windows for my vert.

I am in the process of making one peice windows for my vert. This is an attempt i am doing on my own cause i have always liked the way my car looks when the wing dings are off the doors. It gives it a sleek look and more room for me to rest my arm on. I am going to make them electric windows as well and that will make rolling them up when i park less of a hassle. What i am planning on doing is taking the chrome trim that is along the edge of the glass and extending it using another set i got from the junkyard so it can run all the way to the pillar. There will be some welding involved so it should make for some humor since i never welded before.. After i get it all done i am going to have all the window trims powdercoated black. I will be doing some build up pics so you can see the progress. Now all i have to do is find the time do this all.........

power windows is definitely the way to go with one piece windows.
the regulators will work much better then beetle ones and the windows
will go up much nicer and smother.
