i've got a fiberglass shell for my '92 toyota extra cab that is in good shape but i would like to convert to the side windows (which currently slide) to the type that open. basically, to go from something that looks like this:
to something like this:
there's not too much available in terms of new caps for this vehicle (the extra cab slopes in such a way that most shells won't work on it) and the few that do fit cost about three arms and at least four legs.
i've contacted a couple of shell / cap dealers in the area but they are all re-sellers and don't have the materials to make new window frames. any ideas?
i may be gravely mistaken but it seems that this isn't all that difficult if i could source the parts for it (especially the aluminum pieces required to make the window frames). alternatively, maybe i could mail in a mold/pattern of the window opening and have them ship me the frames?
anyhow, like i said, that might be way off base. just trying to get ideas on how to get this done. thanks
