I'd be curious too Everett what the og's did look like. I used the black roll from Wolfsburg West and took scissors to slightly angle cut the ends. As the saying goes, it worked swimmingly well Smile

As I mentioned, I have really enjoyed the bus restoration project. In my experience, I found it MUCH easier to work on than a beetle.

I just thought a full resto on a genuine 23 would be a blast ...

Reading thru all the comments... suppose I did decide to use Grumpy's metal roof/window parts to make my 13-window to a 21-window.

Thank you all for the feedback. Very good food for thought.
