Very nice, Alberto. I agree with everyone else. Oem top has glass so everyone expects it to have a glass window. If it were to have a glass window, would you hook up a rear defroster switch to it?

Are the new brackets thicker? If so, by how much?

Just did a quick photoshop on my comp to see what the outside molding looked like molded together. I think it looks 10x better how you combined that part. Gives it a meaner clean look.

Yes, it will. But did you know the OEM rear window is about $750 at the dealer?

We would be making a rear window mold as well. The lexan would be curved into place

The inside would be your choice of FRP or carbon or even carbon kevlar. Here is some pictures of our mugen double sided 2x2
