There is not much said about windows in the rules.
I want to keep the windows on the car for rallies and races, but want to quick release them to get to the tools and spare tire, so i need to go Lexan Windows with lever or quick bolts / cotter keys. The easiest way to do this is with the Lexan window on the outside of the window socket as shown in the first and second picture.
My question is that if I use Lexan windows would I be able to install them on the outside of the window socket as the first and second picture shows or does it need to stay in the pocket as the third picture shows. I do not want to show up at the races and get protested. :)
What does the Coalition say ??

Thanks :),
The windows are not the question,
its the install of the windows, they are attached outside of the window socket in leu of installed in the window socket, I will continue with the Lexan exterior mount until I hear different,
thanks for your input. :)

I understood the mounting issue. You no advantage over anyone else with that set up.

I have thought about this in the past and Mead's idea is a neat thing to try.

We run no windshield but always wondered how something like this might work? Just enough wind deflection to lessen the dust and wind to the face, yet still let the car clear out and keep air moving.







Or a half one like this? Would these be against the rules? This one would be great in a cold race I think. You could still reach over and clean it.




And what about this funny looking thing? Anyone ever tried one on their bug? Seems it might only work at high speed?
