very nice Boss. If possible can you take a picture from a little distance so i can see what it looks like compared to the body paint of the car.

i used those covers and they actually arent all that bad. much better than replacing the entire windows. lots of pictures in my album, but no real close ups of the windows.

When I converted mine to 87-93 windows, I bought a used set and sanded and then used high build primer sanded then used satin trim black to finish it off. This was four years ago and they still look pretty good. If I knew then what I know now, I would have taken a little more time and such, but what do you do?

This is in 2005 and before I "restored" them.

This one is the best picture I could find to show the windows. It was from 2006 right before the 347 install.

nice HogT. Well I think that's what I'm gonna do. Definitely not going to buy new windows, especially since mine are already tinted. And I think sanding and painting is going to be cheaper and look better than the panels you glue over top.

Wow, those look great repainted!

I have an NOS set in boxes that I was going to use, but I think I'll try to repaint the old ones first. If it doesn't turn out good, no big deal, I'll use the new set.
