    wndsofchng06, Do you think your rear glass will fit my car?it's similar at the glass in your profile car?your profile car glass looks different that my car...Maybe I can make a paper template and send it to you to compare glass size, to be sure....will you ship it to me in Fl? How much are you asking for?thanks for your help! Daniel
