We have a fire shattered rear cabin window to replace. Pre-L car, s/n 3450 +/-.
Does anyone have theirs out that could trace out a pattern to take to the glass guy to cut me a replacement?
Original Post
Nor'easter, several owners have done this, and at least one vendor. Larry Stock of Pantera Parts Connection in NV, says as easy as the glass window breaks in a fire, you'll likely get about the same protection from a plastic rear window. In addition, its about 5 lbs lighter and easier to handle. He has plexiglas or Lexan rear windows in stock.
I had heard about the possibility of double-paned rear windows for sound deadening.

Is that real, or just a rumor?

Not positive, but although he did make some,I do not believe it is currently offered.

I have double glass in mine works great for sound and heat!
It is two 5mm laminated glass with 3mm space that are filled with argon gas.
Same system as they use in buildings here in Finland.
But it has to be a little bigger and glued in because its so thick.

You can just make a paper template of the opening and then measure the rubber sealing in the trace and take the difference of the template

Jack,
I'm not really sure if I want plastic back there.
Kim,
I figured I could try that as a last resort, though I do think an accurate outline of an existing window would be best. Someone must have theirs out.
Wilkinson shows a cost of $254 for the post Chassis #2001 style rear window, I'm betting you'll be into it almost that to get cut locally.
Did you ever get a traceing?
