i may have missed it... are there going to be side windows? if so how are you going to do it with the windshield further forward?
For the time being there will be no side glass. I am welding the tops of the doors shut and since I didn't widen the roof, but instead am going to roll the body out to meet it, the glass runs would need to be curved and thus the glass curved also.

I will be making some clear vinyl snap-in storm curtains or something like that just in case of really bad weather or if I have to leave it overnight in bad weather.

I think you could still do side glass with teh windshield moved forward. It would just require a small fixed pane on the body or an oversized framed piece the door that hangs out front. I am sure the door would still swing. Of course not all of the glass could be roll-down.
