Default quarter windows deleted. no louvers

I am looking for a complete delete kit for the 1/4 windows. I am looking for a solid plate to fill the hole then I am going to get rid of the seems and paint over it so it looks like the windows were never there. anyone know where I can find a true delete kit. the closest thing I have found are the saleen extreme 1/4 window kits. I am looking for something that smooths out the window so I just have to fill in the cracks where the weather stripping was.

I have only seen one on here and it was totally custom cut and filled. I dont know of a kit. As all of the body's have their own little "personalities" I would go with custom cutting and fitting/welding a plate in. The one guy that I saw on here, It did look very sweet!!

here is what I have so far. I also removed the faux gas cap in the rear and filled those holes and painted that area black to match the front. molded the hood sccop in to get rid of the seems as well as removing the fender badges. damn holes, they are everywhere!
mmmmmmm turbo. gotta get to the dyno for a retune with more boost.

The only proper way will be removing the window and welding in a plate.

If youare a proficient fiberglasser, you could do it that way, but I wouldn't recommend it.

I like the "less is more" approach you are taking; Filling the decklid is way cool and way rare. I am a fan of this as I have filled/shaved the decklid, GT fender emblem holes, and antenna; as well as ordering spoiler delete. I like the fact that the car doesn'tsay Ford orGTand simply has the tri-bar pony on the center caps and the steering wheel hub. I would have considered Roush or Saleen but how do you get rid of 50 signatures splashed all over the car. That's just me, and I respect everyone's personal likes/dislikes. ...anyway, you should consider in any fabrication mod what it would take to put it back to stock. The deckilid, fender emblems and antenna can be returned on a Saturday morning by simply redrilling the holes (keep a template before filling). To fill the qtr windows the glass needs to be removed and steel welded in. Pretty much no matter what you do in the interior it's gonna be obvious that windows were once there. That alone would prevent me from doing it. If it doesn't look like it was designed a certain way originally; meaning it has telltale signs of a patch-job, it's just "bad". To return it to stock would be very difficult; you may not like it or want to trade or sell one day and you are much better off with stock qtr windows; I persoanlly love the qtr glass, it was well done by Ford and is so reminiscent of the 66 Shelby qtr glass. JMO, I could easily fab this in myself but I wouldn't even do louvers. Consider this mod seriously, incl how the interior would be finished. JMHO but I think doing this is a big mistake.

Say, got any pics of your decklid? Also what grill is that you have? Any pics of the front? Thanks, and don't take me wrong; you do what makes you happy; congrats on looking to be "different". You car looks terrific already!!
