The glass may require mucho work (as with all replicas) in order to fit into "your" doors.  Some late model cars are using laminated glass for the side doors.  There is a possibility that they can be cut to fit but the dimensions and curvature may hinder usage also.  Measure your window opening and check for a car with that sized window.  Cut a piece of cardboard and put it in your window opening and make a simple curve gage from it.  Are we having fun yet?

This picture shows about how far the glass will roll down.
Keep in mind these are OEM sized door shells.

So G28 door shells won't work?Are you talking about both outside shells and inner doors?What is the difference?

Nice work! Did you have to trim the glass or is it stock dimensions?

Another thing to consider:

These pictures show a starting point, much more additional framing and supports need to be added to the door to make it functional and safe!

Hope this helps,
Mike

It is not perfect, but the door glass from a 2002 Saturn ion coupe
can be made to work. I bought 2 complete doors from the u-pull it for 70 bucks. I was able to trim the doors down and keep the regulators, window tracks and motors attached to the sheetmetal and mount that in my door shell in one piece. Good luck on you quest ::thumbup

Who made the body? Knowing that info would help with the answer to your question.

I really don't have time to do that.  Just read the Reventon build diaries and when you find windshield or door glass, send the gentleman a PM.
