Hello and thanks for the compliment. $10,000.00 to start, more if you want it done faster than 4 months.

If I may venture an opinion, that is the most BUTT UGLY thing I have ever seen on a Sky! I think Norm should add a $10,000 ugly tax as well.

Hello, that was pretty funny.
Something more practical and doeable is what we did in conjuction with this Sky team. But as what Ive been going through with the Solstice its no easy matter to make it viable for regular street use. All it would take of course is a lot of money, but doing it on the Solstice on my own dime is taking longer than I want. The main holdup now is the rear glass, I make one now that is Plexiglass for racing though for street use and make it usable is another deal. Thanks Norm

Is that version (on the Falken Sky) available for purchase?

Also, is the plexiglass version not streetable because of durability issues (plexi standing up to the elements), or legal issues (safety requirements, DOT regulations, etc...)?

Hello the GM rear window is almost $900.00 which puts it out of the topic. Using Plexiglass for a back glass stands up well to the elements, I have customers who have used our rear F40 glass now since 1993. The plexiglass rear we make now is not stiff enough on its own for the Solstice without using braces or straps as in most race cars. Fine if you dont need access, a little tougher if you want to be able to raise the rear glass for entry.

The Falken top is not available, unless you have a lot of money. LOL, thanks Norm

I like Norm's work, but But, if it's the one in Post 9, and it fits the contour of the Sky, then I'm in.
