I know they had a few issues with the ownership changeover. I'm not sure how everyone else fared, but they gave us a free month after they pulled our vendor status several times last fall despite being paid up.

It may be that 1) they're behind, 2) the records are incomplete (the company that previously handled the forum payments dropped the ball on any number of things) or 3) they're giving everyone some extra time/a grace period.

This setup wont work? Why, cause of the angle on the top bar that allows the carrier to hug the body lines?

finally getting some work done on the quarter panel armor. Template is done and looking spot on (ignore the tape haha) Now I just need to get a hold of some 1/8'' plate and some tube. They are going to have a slider bar running along the top just under the window line to keep trees from busting out glass

LOL Wouldnt it be easier just to take the glass out and replace it with 1/8"plate. Then you would never break the glass again. Its not like you can see out the glass anyways. If I break mine thats whats going in instead of glass.

I've been thinking about this for years. I've done so tape mock ups.... How are you going to match the curvature of the panel? I'd be interested in this if you can make it work.
