interesting. probably look better once it's painted. kinda sucks that you had to drill into your hatch. also if a car hit you shouldn't they be paying for the reapair, not you?

You need to figure out how to get the window to open like a hatch.....that would be one badass mod...........

Nice temp fix! A whole lot better than the usual duct tape and flapping vinyl sheet. :)

When you go to the CF, try to take some pics as-it's-happening for us, OK? :)

hard to have the window pop open like a hatch if a wiper is on it. and without seriously reducing the size of the rear window the 4runner mod will also be very hard to do. the pop out window wouldn't be too hard.

hey brent, i just had an "aftermarket" glass installed w/ the defroster on my bB CF Hatch for $285.00 installed, and they came to my pad to git da job done. they were done in 10 - 15 min.

if ya need da bB clear glass for da rear, or all da way around, i know of a vendor who gits them. they may have one set in stock? i gotta give them a call to make sure if ya need one. lemme know.

if ya need da glass install, PM me, and i'll give ya da #.

hope dat wurks. :)

yep theres someone on here in fact that has the JDM bB NCP30 clear windows.

Pumpkin Box. aka Windowtint aka Jay

One of the xBs I hold in highest regards in my book. Id shoot him a PM for price, but I know it was insanely expensive. Plus, if you figure you break another window, gotta plan in the time to get a new one from Japan to match!!! You could do it if you REALLY wanted, but I would suggest getting a glass installed like Eric did and have them do that shiz.

wow 800? that seems way cheap compared to what Jay paid i believe. id be very much down for it probably if i could get it then. small price to pay for being the only one in the state (or region). haha. damn Nebraska

all righty guys, i will git da price tomorrow. i will need to talk to them, since they only speak japanese, so hold on guys and i'll git da low down.

just to let ya know, i have no financial interest with either business', i've only dealt with them as a client basis, but i can always give a good word about my brudahs here on CLUB xB.
