Sorry for digging up an old thread.....
But trying to ascertain, does the glass gen 5 panel bolt into the Gen 4 runners ?
And if it does you just need to mess about with the spacing ???

anything else ?

thanks

That's right, though you won't have a sun shade doing it that way. I hardly ever use mine though.

I’m interested in doing this mod but unfortunately the pictures are no longer available. Would it be possible to upload these again or maybe send me the archive? I could use some visual guidance :)

I hope so :). Actually I’m halfway there. I’m running into some issues that the rear half of the assembly does not really tightly fit and feels like the rear/motor assembly needs to bend a little?

Also the rear headlining needs some modifications to fit, I was hoping to see some more on the pictures.

Thanks in advance!
