    My viper has Autoform lightweight doors to accommodate the roll-cage but there's no room for OEM windows. Does anyone know who manufactures these doors and what lightweight plexi windows could be fitted to give decent resistance to rain?
    Thanks!

    Have you tried to reach out to Autoform?? They may be able to find something that works for their doors.

    You can reach out to viper Parts USA. They advertise a set for comp coupes (Generation 3). they might be able to find you a supplier.

    Great news! I know many of the UK racers use plexi side windows. I would think a local supplier might also be able to help you and craft a set too.

    I'd like to have some in my CC for weather (on an open trailer, sitting at the track, washing the car). Haven't really pursued as in the states all track venues require windows down so I'd have to take them on and off at the track. Good luck!! Mike

    Cheers Mike! I had a hard time locating any Crafter in the UK for forming windows from scratch, so I fashioned up myself back in 2013, when I bought the GTS. They kept me mostly dry but weren't pretty....and did crack if not handled carefully. Wish i'd seen these Autoform examples back then.

    Great news, they look interesting. Similar to what an RT/10 aftermarket set of windows look like. Post a picture of the other side, I'm curious to see how they attach to the door.
