I received a set of Chris Cooks GT quarter windows today and installed them. The graphics are excellent, the contour acceptable ( he may have added a bit) and the fit was good. From a few feet away they look very good and are the best repros that we currently have available. I will try to get some pics up tommorrw but at $200/set 2 they are priced fairly.

We put Chris' quarter windows on Tyler's car. They looked great, had some wave to them when we initially pressed them into place, but the thought was that some heat would smooth em out.. After seeing the car again at the show, they have smoothed out, and look great.

After we put them on Tyler's car, I bought a set of his as well. They are a very close match to the originals that were on my car that were all cracked. I test fit one of them in place (I'm not mounting them till I get the car painted) and it looked great! They have a slight curve from top to bottom, and front to back. Not as much as the originals, but they are FAR from being flat like many of the others people talk about.

The dot matrix pattern is flawless, and the only other small note is that the GT logo was about an inch back compared to the placement on the originals.

I just installed a pair of these last week and was generally pleased. His shipping is fast and service is great. I ordered mine with polished edges that turned out really nice. The curvature was not exactly the same as the originals, but certainly close enough, and they look fine once installed. I did notice that the replacements measured almost 1/4" less in the vertical dimension than the original I compared it to, so I ended up with a slightly larger gap around the window. Also, the dot matrix was printed such that it does not completely cover the vertical edge of the plastic inner window piece behind it, at least on my car. However, these are a major improvement over the cracked originals.

I just got off the phone with Justin at The Fiero Store. It turns out that the GT Windows they are selling are Chris Cooks windows. They are just re-selling them.

This concerns me. I wouldn't be happy with a larger gap (even if it takes 'looking for it' to know it's there) or with the dot matrix failing to cover up the parts behind it.
Has anyone else had this problem? Do you think they're 'shorter' because of the polished edges?

From everything I've heard these are the best, and I'm soon going to need some. I'd just like some clarification on the above if anyone can help me out (thanks!).
