Combed through their web site - http://www.opticarmo...com/default.asp

Nothing for the R35 :(
It sounds like they do custom windows but I'm sure it's expensive...

they shouldnt be too expensive. im sure they would do a gtr drop in set if more people asked

I was curious about the opticaarmor Lexan as you can use windshield wipers...if needed.  The side windows are still an issue.


got this email reply from them


Thank you for the interest in our windows.

Side windows without and top upper frame to lock into, will need to be fixed mounted up with a metal frame around the upper portion of the window and bolted to that frame. Without this metal support the side windows would rip out of there location at extreme speeds.

Thank you,

just a thought, would lowering the windows maybe an inch or two before high speed pulls alleviate the high pressure inside the cabin enough to keep the window from being sucked outwards? i tend to drive my car with the windows cracked a few inches almost all the time because it make seeing through the tint easier, especially at night.
