    Is this something that many of us could do ourselves with the right equipment? If so, maybe you could do a write-up with some in-process pictures. I am very interested in this, but am kind of a dumbass :frusty:and would need some guidance. :notsure:

    Can you help? :tumbleweed:

    i will put some new pictures up when i do the rear window. it is very simple to do. the stencil that i used for the front windows i got made for a guy that works at the mall in Austin, took awhile for him to make but worth it. if you have a 3 to 5hp air comperssor you can do this here is picture of what i used to do this. *****if you do try this DO NOT USE SAND CONTAINING CRYSTALLINE SILICA IT WILL CAUSE SERIOUS OR FATAL RESPIRATORY DISEASE. IT WILL CAUSE SILICOSIS, CANCER.***
    i used 220 grit white aluminum oxide abrasive. also use a NIOSH- approved dust mask/respirator. all together cost about 50 bucks.


    i will post more pictures and other details when i do my back glass..
