Only just seen this, but I'd be VERY interested in a pair of estate rear quarter windows. The difficult bit will be removing them without breaking them as they're thin and fragile.

Do you mean 'how' to add?
You have to use photobucket or similar and post an IMG or URL link - can't add photos directly to the forum.

Chum Mike C made this conversion with some trick camshaft he cooked up. Not sure on the gearbox used. However this car was significantly quicker than the standard turbo. It was very much a wolf in sheeps clothing. The fuel could still be reasonably economical, but much of the time it was had flexing its muscles. In fact, it was the architect of its own demise, as it began collecting tickets, along with a bit of a reputation.

Sadly not near me. Sounds like at least one car wants put aside as it might go again. Time makes even breakers more interesting. Yet space, spare cash and the cost of logistics defeat many a sensible idea.

the broom is now worn out, and I'm off for a lie down
Smokes lots, because enough's enough already!

Far too many BX's, a bus, an ambulance a few trucks, not enough time and never enough cash...
