    They look like cutouts for aerocatch hood pins. But I don't see the latches yet.

    Ok just took a second look. They may be there just in the closed position. Hard to tell as the latches are black.

    Thanks for the kind words. Like ryan said its at radical rides and they have done all the work. Killer team down there for sure. And yes those are aerocatch hinges.
    I wish they would make them in alluminum

    VERY nice car!! Was the flush mounted glass hard to do? How do you like those machined hood hinges I have been trying to justify a pair for my T/A.

    They seem to do a good job of keeping the hood up which I've had problems with before on my old camaro. The front glass was not bad to do they used flat bar all along the channel to raise the surface up and cut the top part of a stock windhshield and it fits well. The rear also had to have the channel raised up but the entire glass is custom made. They had to make a form which the glass guys melted a piece over then laminated another piece on top. Yearone doesn't sell the glass but they do list it in their catalogue.

    Are those hinges ring brothers? That's awsome you went that extra mile for the smooth look with the glass, I knew Yearone offered the back glass but nobody offered the front. If your glass guys are interested in making more drop me there phone #. Where did you get the weather striping that fits between the glass and body?

    thanks,
    Texas Paul

    The hinges are fesler. Yearone shows the rear glass in their catalogue but when i called they said they were considering selling it but at the moment they dont. Im not sure if they ever sold it? The guy who did the rear glass has been very unreliable its taken almost 2 years to get it done,he does yacht windows and thats his main priority it seems. And its very fragile and im sure would break if shipped .I think ppg has custom glass at certain locations so you might want to look into that. The weatherstripping is just some standard stuff the glass installer supplied. Im sure its easy to source from someone local to you. I can find out what exactly it is if you like.
