Glass in, taillights on.

Just finishing putting the new greentint glazing back in the windows and tried a mock up with the taillights to see how they all go together, they are not even hooked up! The reflection is off the flash on the camera. It is a good feeling getting the outside closed in. I realise it was probably better practice to polish after the interior is finished, but I figure the end result will be a better polish, as is will have had more time spent on it over a longer period. Oh the polishing, the polishing, the polishing!

The green tint was a bit of a dilemma, a friend of mine ( whom is a glazer ) informed me that to get actual green tinted glass, I would only be able to get it in 5mm thick ( something like 1/5 of an inch I think if that makes any sense ), here. So in some ways it was an easy decision, I wanted to carry on the whole "lightness " philosophy as best I could and just got all the old glass covered in a layer of green tint film. I am really pleased with the result, but because of using the old glass, there are a few imperfections, and the film on the inside can be susceptible to scratching, and you have to be very careful not to use any harsh cleaners on the film itself too, but apart from that, and breaking two panes of glass in the process, it has been a good experience.
