curve and cut to size. Then install it with the original seals and trim. In the
doors Install the Lexan in the original frames and put stops in the track to keep
the windows tight to the top. Give you the Lexan you want, still save 45 lbs.
over glass, a lot less wind noise, and stock look. Don't mean to butt in here,
just a suggestion if your going to street it much.

This is a good way to go, the only thing I have heard is that you are better off getting the preshaped rear and door roll up windows because a good fit is vital. Quarter windows and such you can definitely DYI.

In order to complete the door however you want to remove the window regulator and use a leather strap to hold your window either down or up. Big weight savings.
