I'm sorry but I have to ask.  Why would you put vent windows in a convertible.  And again I'm sorry but those are really nasty looking to me.  JMHO


no offense taken, i think they are ugly myself but they are a function>form type mod. I have no AC/defrost and the windshield tends to fog up on those cool spring and summer mornings and evenings.
I have and LOVE the cool breeze scoop that moves alot of air down onto my legs while im driving the car, and i figured if these move similar air that i can either direct towards my face or towards the windshield that i can fix alot of my fogging issues.  If they dont work like i hope, its an hour or two to put the stock glass back in. Its worth a shot

Air directed at you feels awfully nice rather than just air running over your head. We have similar setup on our lemons car and it's a lifesaver

I like the vent windows, but why are there so high up? All the ones I've seen sit much lower.

yeah i had read that if you are taller that the project G hit you more in the chest than the face so i opted for the higher MiataRoadster ones. i wont know til spring where they vent the air to you. car is down for a full rebuild this winter.

Be sure to update! I've been wanting to do this mod for a while now just never really had a good reason too. I'm curious to see if they make no air conditioning bearable enough.

I'm one of those folks that's torn out his softtop and permanently attached a hardtop. But I did have a coolbreeze scoop years ago before it broke. It was very nice.

I have that same seat but opted to make my own rails.  Surprisingly comfortable.

i saw those, i need to have the seat as low and as far back as i can... Im actually thinking of modifying the Track Dog Racing Seat to get me even lower and further back than i am with the test fit.

got the carpets out, test fit the seat, i have to start tweaking the rail to get me lower and further back cause i dont like the current location. I practiced my vinyl wrapping skills on the center console around the radio and shifter for future projects, plus i covered up that hideous silver
