Nice work, glad to see you're saving the cab 🙂 .

I’m not Glad to be doing it 😂... Thanks man not my finest work but good enough I think I’d have had better results had I used my bead roller to make the channel and just rolled the radius into flat metal as opposed to bending something up and shrinking and stretching it like I did  because I didn’t want to have to “waste time” digging  out the right tool   😂😂

where's the video of designing the rear power window ? That's pretty cool. 

Thanks still in the very early stages of the project not much to show the regulator is just tacked on to a crude bracket right now to kinda see what’s what I’ll post more about it as I make some more progress I ran out of steel over the weekend so I moved on to my new pedal set up but I’m hoping to get back to the rear glass next weekend
