Back in the Hippie 60's many panels and vans had all sizes and shapes of windows cut in them. Some even had sliding rear pickup windows installed in the sides. I don't even like 5w AD pickup cabs so not a fan of added windows. Picture of a nice clean 54 panel brought in to have the "Hippie Holes" patched with rivets and Panel Bond. Don't swoon over the shag carpet floor, sides, and roof; a real love nest in it's day.

OK OK OK You guy's are killing me because I know your right , was hoping there might be something available to make it easy. Love the reply,(Whew, thinking about this makes me tired ).
I will try and add my photobucket here so you can see what it took to get where I am with the panel. You will see that I don't mind doing a bit of fitting and welding But... I am not throwing in the towel just yet. I'm retired and our winters last about six months so time is not a problem.
But( why ruin a perfectly good panel truck) makes a lot of sense.
Thanks for the input
