Post Cox GTM door windows
Just made a set of GTM polycarbonate windows for a Mr Jones, Gwynedd.
If anyone else would like a set they are £60 a car set. Comply to MSA rules.
If your interested call Stuart on 0113 2509852.
Hope I am not breaking any rules with this post.

Sorry no pictures. They look just like a set of standard windows.
This is the first set we have made in 20+ years.
These are 4mm thick polycarbonate to MSA spec. Are the originals glass?

Are you Race Plastics ?
Original the coupe had polycarb (might be perspex) but swapped to glass later in the coupe lifetime.

Are these one piece windows or where they the sliding type similar to the early mini ?

I have just finished a template for a one piece windows with 210mm square sliders, Image
so might drop you an email for a price.

Hi Ken
I cut one piece polycarb windows and then cut a circular hole to accept the Car builder Catalogue round vents

The "Helicopter vents" as we call them.

I did wonder about a couple of the smaller ones on the back screen as hot air exits.

That's the ones, I did not think I needed to open windows here, when it's 45c in the shade its not worth opening a window :lol: now in our cold season its enough to switch off the a/c

we don't have any drive through takeaways here so not a problem, but would have thought a GTM too low down to be served without getting out out the car anyway :lol:
