It's hard to tell from the pics... But was it clear glass, then tinted? Or frosted glass then tinted?

I have a hard time wrapping my head around someone using frosted glass for passenger side window, but I've seen it done.

Either way... Door looks awesome!

I decided to cut my camping short one day to get home to get back to the grind. This time i got my turbo, up pipes & a piece of my exhaust pipe off. This turbo is huge compared to what i deal with at work on the daily. It is lager then the F-series turbos due to the engine being de tuned. Now it is time for a complete over haul. Rebuilt turbo, exhaust manifolds and i finally found someone to recieve my exhaust pipes in phenoix Arizona so i have to jump threw some hurdles but hey i will stop at nothing to get this project done the way i want it.
Sorry Dale earnheart fans.
