    Default Truck Topper - convert my sliding windows to open style?

    This may not be the right forum to post this, but I have a camper shell on my truck that has sliding side windows with screens (red truck).

    I want to replace them with the windows that open so you can reach into the camper shell and get things, called side access window doors.

    Has any fab'd anything like this up before? I am really wanting to do this, so please offer any and all suggestions.

    Thanks.

    lx450landcruiser,

    that is exactly what i want to do! Although I might use plexiglass in place of the aluminum.

    I am having trouble finding the exact hinge you used, can you post a link to the same one you installed?
