Exclamation Installing Polycarbonate Windows... HELP!!

I just got my polycarbonate windows from ISC racing! The thing is i hadn't thought about how to install the rear hatch window, so I was hopeing to learn how some of you other folks did it. I'm just not sure what to do because of the rain gutter back there. I don't need it now that the hatch wont open but I don't know what to do with it. Sounds funny I know. Any help would be great, thanks!

What gen are you working with here? On my FC I retained the hatch frame and removed the glass. This gave me a mounting "bracket" as well as a functional hatch. Looks great, and pretty much water/air tight.

Curious how much you spent on the windows and hatch. I made mine from stock at a plastics supply store. I think the windows and hatch were less then $100.00.

Best of luck.

I attached 2 pics of the ISC window attached to a car. I'm not sure what to tell you other than most (not all) use the stock top mount. The bottom and sides are held on my Dzues fasteners or hood type pins. This piece is not recommended for daily street us as it would be tough to make it water tight.

Good luck.

Paul

edit: for a large selection of fasteners go to http://www.pegasusautoracing.com/
not the least expensive but great people and most are racers so the give good advice over the phone. In that regard I would assume Mike at ISC could help along with the great people at Mazdatrix.
