Custom lexan/polycarbonate rear window, legal?

Hi guys I have a secret project going on and I need some advise before I get over my head... for the rear windshield I want to make a lexan/polycarbonate window and I need to know if this is legal in B.C.

I would specially like to shape the glass a little to fit a custom hardtop for my convertible car, so is any type of plastic glass legal here and the dam monopolistic insurance company ICBC that dictates what can be insured.
Thanks

Charles

chances are if its not DOT approved; its not legal. Unless its for track use only, even then theres rules and regualtions you have to abide by.

Citing the BC MVA 7.05(4)

No person shall replace, or cause to be replaced, any glass in a door or windshield or window of a motor vehicle or a camper except with safety glass, provided that glass replaced in a windshield of a motor vehicle shall not be heat treated or case hardened glass.

So no go. All windows need to be safety glass.

what about safety-glass off other small hatch cars....like the Beetle. Two of them parallel would make a bubble hatch.

This might be way easier since it is local, so you don't get border guards / clearing houses making all types of excuses. The place is out in Poco, next to the new bridge.

Thanks for the company finds, I guess its possible to do the custom hatch I wanted... I'll just have to see if its affordable first.

^ in the automotive world 'custom' & 'affordable' are two words that almost never end up in the same sentence...

custom fabrication done by a proper shop is properly priced

Im thinking of finding Civic windows from a junkyard for ~$80 then cutting them into ovals with a rotozipper as shown in the video.

Before you go to a custom glass shop, have your CAD file ready.. it will save both parties a lot of time.

I cant afford to take it anywhere, I also found out that cutting those side windows off a Civic will shatter at the slightest cut because they are tempered glass.

The solution, overlapping! I'd just have to adjust my cad model for a flatter hatch but still keep the oval opening shape.

Thanks again guys and ancient_510 for finding the motor vehicle act laws.
