I gotta say, you sure look pleased with your install- and you well should be. I can remember that feeling of enthusiasm about a bus...vaguely.
HAHA!! I would have been pleased if I got more than one of these in after one long stupid day. That's probably my squinty face. But really I am quite happy about the hatch.
It is tinted pretty dang dark. You can hardly see through it from the top even up close. Inside during that grey rainy day it was surprisingly bright. Not sure what it's like in direct sun yet.
You can definitely stand on it, but I won't!! I think the aluminum is thick enough, couldn't tell you how thick though. It's solid, it's well made, it's made in New Zealand and retails for $700-$1000 in NZ and Australia for whatever that's worth...I think it's out of production now, hence the price. Here's another source if that ebay one sells out:
