I like the SAP idea - might be biased since I have SAP though...

Also we could all just start posting lol

Also I have looked and if the sap fits the svt rear bumper wouldn't that mean the svt rear insert fit the zx4 st rear bumper, also it would go with the whole point of it being svt. So now deffinantly undecided....... thanks Google search.

Yes the svt 3 door hatch has side skirts. And ill let you in on a little secret, I didnt have to cut the quarter panel or rocker AT ALL so when I get the panel put on the side skirts fit on there just like Ford wanted me to do this

Are you planning to do a custom plexiglass or polycarbonate window for the rear opening now? Obvious you'll have to do something custom just wondering if you were gonna use plastic or have a real piece of glass cut.

My first choice is gonna be to look at a few factory windows like the mk ll, and the wagon to see if they would fit with minimal trimming. There is a slight bend and im pretty sure after talking with some companies and taking some degree measurments the bend is too much being that all the custom glass companies can only cut flat glass. I found a place online called TAPLASTICS. They offer an acrylic, the same thing that is used for an aquarium that you would take your kids to see sharks. Its stronger and more scratch resistant than lexan and stronger than traditional glass.
