    What about adding the extra roof window at the back but deleting the one above the cab door - this would line up with the rear side windows and would look better than an original Samba I reckon.

    It’s your Kombi.......do what you want with it, and make it to your liking. ;)

    I think the grafted samba roof will be a real head turner, and looks awesome. :)

    You’re never going to try and palm it off as a factory original.......so what does it matter what the purists think?

    I like the front windows. As a gentleman of the taller variety it is hard to see traffic lights. This would help.

    Maybe you could move the sunroof forward and stick your head out while driving.

    :eek: The first cut is the hardest:eek: but the most pleasing as the rest becomes easier o_Oo_O Are you trying to get it to look symmetrical balanced ? As it would with the extra window in roof to match the side windows :D.Then do you question the size of the sliding roof in relation to windows ;). Either way it would look pleasing to see,different to look at. Shore turn heads:cool:

    Pics of the Skylights and sunroof rails roughed in.
    I think I am too late to order and receive the extra skylight set, I'll have to call Grumpy's tomorrow. I am still 50:50 whether i go ahead with 25 windows but appreciate the comments and suggestions. berg.

    Looking at the various pictures of 4 windows per side or even the 2up front (driver and passenger would fry :confused: having had a car with a sun/moon roof) I'm going with the 3 windows also :D

    Berg as an owner of a 15 window as you you will appreciate that cleaning all that glass is a bitch. SO more window would be a bad thing. Only joking go for it.
