We have a glass shop in Harrisonburg VA that has done cut down door glass a while back for reasonable price. The place is called Windshield City. Might be worth checking into if you can't find someone local to do it. Plexiglass would hold you over, but it's a pain to buff the scratches out every so often. Dealt with that when one of the guys in my former hot rod club did a chopped top VW beetle rat rod thing.

Tuner4Lifes work is awesome and he is quite the craftsman. Both of my vans have gone through (or going through) some major transformations. I had never done any welding/fabrication/fiberglassing/bodywork before I bought my van (about 7 years ago). I just asked a lot of questions from people that do, practice and then attempt it. That's why it took me 7 years on my last van and I am just now ready for paint. Guess I am just brave enough (or stupid enough) to start cutting and then hope I can put it back together. The tilt front end on my other van was the modification that kicked my butt.....took almost a year to do that modification!
