Lapse in rain

Since today was quite a nice overcast day I figured that before the rain picks up again I should fab a new hatch window.

It didn't cost me a dime, actually I made money on installing it, as I sold the old glass for $100 and this only cost me $50. Total weight savings of 5lbs, so it really wasn't worth it, but hey it is still 5lbs.

Also after removing the not so magical 3MM blue masking tape it took some paint off as well, so it looks like I am going to have to re-paint the rear hatch. The question now becomes re-paint it satin black, or change it to Pac-Man yellow?

The day has a couple more hours of light, so maybe after a quick snack I'll head back out to the car to double check my wiring measurements and really nail down the gauge size for the chassis diagram.
