Update:





Made a template, cut the polycarbonat and bolted it in place. 5 mm thick. No big issues.

Looking good. You might want to change out those bolts to a screw something like this.
Super-Corrosion-Resistant 316
Stainless Steel Extra-Wide
Rounded Head Screws for Sheet Metal

Yeah the bolts were primarily needed to control the bend. I'll change them for some less conspicuous bolts or screws. Also maybe ad some kind of Chrome trim if possible.

You know what might look good is black poprivits.

Not a bad idea!

I did think about poprivits during the install, but I would like to be able to unscrew the window for future paint or vinyl wrap. Maybe when that's done I'll change to rivets. I dig the black idea though, so maybe black screws until then.

You might consider some retaining straps, as that looks to be a great big parachute which is going to see a lot of force if you're going fast.

If you want to be able to remove the window without drilling pop-rivets, but you still want the attachment not to be so obvious, a strip of black vinyl all along the edge of the window would cover them nicely. You could even use electrical tape, I bet!

Don't think the parachute effect has changed from that of an original targa? The window is bolted down to the frame and targa bar with 40 bolts. The original targa window is held by a rubber seal.

I'll have to look into that vinyl tape. Sounds like an easy fix!
