I went to four body shops for quotes but ended using a shop that had been around awhile, I removed the rear handle trim, rear glass, trunk panel trim, license plate hardware to help save on the cost. Reassembled, super easy. Pretty cheap actually, the paint line stops under the bottom of the glass, that way they didnt have to remove the entire hatch and whatnot. Looks factory. It hard gets dirty, just a little dusty. Ive been told I could put rain-x water repellent on the glass. I use some quick detail wax really really lightly on there and water just beads off. I never used the rear wiper anyways.. do it up!

Thanks! Your ride looks awesome as is, love it, but I suppose theres always room for improvement. The glass is hardly held in, pull the back panel, take out the wiper motor and grommet, the mount and bam! half way there. Two day turn around. Toss the wiper motor and think of it as weight savings.. some sort of half ass justification..

That looks good...how much is "pretty cheap"? I've been contemplating this mod and was wondering about cost. Shaved handles always look good too IMO.

I had quotes up to about 900 but I was able to work with a shop and I took it apart for $400. Looks amazing. I don't regret it one bit... Go for it!
