Power rear window mod

So i decided to do the mod that 808UpFront did to his Frontier. Thanks to his post and the help it provided me here: https://www.clubfrontier.org/forums/f...dow-mod-84424/
His truck was a king cab and mine is a crew cab so it is a little different.
I was able to mount the track as shown in the pic after i made two mounting blocks. i milled the blocks with a 15 degree angle to get the track to set perfectly!

Since i am a machinist i made a bracket to go from the track and to attach to the strip which is stuck to the glass. I used 3M VHB tape for the whole length(13.25"). I also made some tiny pieces that wrap around the end to capture the glass to give it more grab.

This is what it looked like before and after i put the cover on. It works great and will get a lot more use now that it is power.

It you could make all the parts like you used and give a more detailed explanation of how you placed everything, I bet this would be a great kit to sell, I know I would be interested, I also have a CC so all the parts would be exactly like yours
