I've got a 99 Thomas/FL with a 3126. I like it a lot. Mines a 5 window shorty.

Seats all out, rubber stripped. Adhesive scraped. Ran outta daylight, still need to wire wheel the joints and patch a small spot by back door. Then it's rust converter and paint. Seems like a lot of work for a part that will never be seen, but i will know.
