I skierd to install one of those, so I will save it as last resort.

It was also a panel "truck", so no rear seat, just an extra storage compartment. Nice light little vehicle. Nobody but the DMV considers it a truck, but having panels instead of rear side windows forced me to have it weighed and to get commercial plates. 1/4T truck! I used to buy, fix and sell those critters. If I had known beforehand, I'd have popped in some glass from a wagon in my batch of Vegas as a temporary measure.
hello my Californian brother, we had a blue station wagon vega back in the mid 80's ourselves, and yes our DMV is a force to be reconed with, ha ha
