:cool Being in the aluminum business, I found some u-channel extrusion and a rubber gasket/beading to fit the u-channel to hold 1/4 inch lexan and designed and bent the aluminum to fit the contour between the roll bars. Got everything cut and put it together and it works great. It comes up 4 inches above the rear deck and breaks the air flow from buffeting the back of your head. It's mounted with 2 sided tape and just the pressure against the roll bars and the tape, make it very sturdy. I would have to remove the lexan to move the frame.It's open across the top of the lexan, I finished the top cut with a torch to get the smooth polished finish by melting the lexan along the top cut. Because companies won't spend the $ to produce aftermarket items because of the lack of XLR's , We end up doing our own aftermarket items. It looks professional and like it came on the car from GM. I took it by the dealership today and they could'nt believe how great it looked and professionally it was built and installed. When i get a chance, I'll post some pictures of this and some other things done to the car. Bill

If he never told a lie, why did his army stay with him? Because he promised them better conditions, which they never got. Better food, which they never got, and payment for services, which they only got part of.
