Maybe if anything, I'll remove my small driver's side window and cut a huge hole for a window like that conversion van had, so my kids have a better view when driving.
Ya, its seriously crazy how much lighter it is in there. My son didn't make a sound the whole way, when we were running errands earlier today, so its definitely a win in my book!

I think if I was going to go your route I would definitely do a smaller window in the back if at all, this one is massive.

I'm sure. I had a serious gut check moment before I cut the underfloor storage hole. But at least that one I could just weld back in. The small wins add up!!

Oh yeah I forgot he is still rear facing! Wait until you turn him around! My daughter got turned around once she was barely big enough. Not ideal I know, but she got WAY better in the car instantly. I figured she is better off facing forward when I can focus on driving, rather than dealing with a screaming whining baby all the time. I'll turn my son around when he turns one, but he is nearly as big as his 2.5 year old sister anyway.

I probably would have done it a long time ago but my wife makes the rules and honestly knows whats best when it comes to his safety, so I just modify the world around him to make it easier on me ha ha.

Ha ha ya, its funny because up until the point of the jigsaw actually cutting the panel, I was worried about messing something up. But once the saw started going, I got lost in the cutting and didn't have time to be worried and it turned out great.

At least you know your place!

If you have any other projects for tomorrow let me know. My wife still thinks you need help with the window.

Well done man! Looks like a size really close to the oem window. Can you share the part number? I'm curious if it's one of the window numbers I have jotted down at work, lol.
