I've got an 83 half top thats been butchered up a bit(fixable). and I have access to an 81 half top thats in great shape. I'm sure I can drill the holes for the seat belts but switching the slider rear glass from the 83 to the 81?????

thanks for any input.

Maybe. There are 2 different sizes of glass. I think the break point is somewhere mid-'83. The difference is in the angle of the corner cuts. Its very subtle. If you can't tell by comparing the two, you can contact GR8TOPS- he will email you a PDF with the two different patterns. You can print them in actual size and hold then up to what you have. He also sells sliders (and I think seals as well) so if you do have different sizes, you could always consider buying one for the '81 top.

I wonder how hard or if its possible to put and 83 glass slider in the 81 top? I ask this b/c I've already got the glass.
