I got some better welds on the inside; I dropped the wire speed down to almost 3 1/2.

I put the side windows in. Looks a lot better. I put the front window on, with screws and no weatherstrip. Almost looks like it's from 1972.

Need some advice. For the front window, as well as the hinge for the rear window, should I rivet or screw? How water-tight are rivets? I know they make subs out of them, but those are definetly different rivets than the pop rivets I have. Are there better rivets? I have short screws and screw gaskets (from rooftop AC units) that I can use. I can't see me wanting to take off the front window for anything, but I do see me wanting to remove the rear window. Ther rear window hinge is from a camper, so I can open it and slide it to the side to get it off, but the chrome molding is definetly going on, and definetly gonna be in the way. Also, same rivet/screw question for the rooftop vent.

Got the front window and roof vent installed. Rivetted and siliconed.
Working on rear window, just need some filler plates. Will be a combination of rivets and screws.
Gonna make front side window hatch things tonight.

It's been raining since, but I managed to get my two block-off doors fabbed up and painted. One mounted. Have not touched the rear since the previous pictures. I will have more pics this afternoon
