Should be really good I think Drakman. I would have liked to do the same, but I have the 70's version that has no frame and needs to be bent, so need to stay with plastic.

The main thing to remember with glass is that it's very important that it doesn't touch steel - either the frame or any bolts, screws, rivets etc. If it's insulated from all of these, I can't see why it shouldn't last just as long as the side glass in any regular car. 

That said, I had a quarter vent window in a Hiilux ute shattered by a rock on a dirt road a few months ago (it was open at the time) so I guess it's possible the same could happen to a Moke side screen if you were unlucky enough for a rock from a passing vehicle to flick up in the wrong way. Slightly more vulnerable than a regular vehicle's side glass due to being flat and slightly angled toward oncoming vehicles (and rocks).  Still, you'd have to be unlucky  :)

Thanks Newie, i thought something went wrong lol.

The glass is sitting in rubber moldings all the way around and held fairly firmly.

All i can do is wait and see, i only paid $50 for them so it's not a huge gamble .

Cheers

Yes, I'd certainly be doing it if I had an 80's model.

They will look great compared to plastic when they're clean and polished  8)
