I cut the frame out with a plasma and then took it over to Safe-Lite Glass. They made a pattern and cut the glass for me. The seal is available. If I had dimensions on what you wanted, yea, I could make more frames then you just take it to a glass place and have them cut it.

I keep looking at the supercharger kit but the cost is just short of half of the total I have into the buggy. :P

Looks good but I think you should have kept the frame lower than the cage at the top. You will likely crack the window if (when) you put it on its lid. Are you doing wipers?

It's a little deceiving but it is a little lower than the top. Most of the stuff is just flops anyway. I'm not overly worried about it.

Yes, doing wipers at some point this summer.
