So i decided to do the mod that 808UpFront did to his Frontier. Thanks to his post and the help it provided me here: http://www.clubfrontier.org/forums/f9/power-sliding-rear-window-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.

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

I have thought about that. I did make models of the parts in Solidworks so they would be fairly easy to reproduce.
