simple and elegant

Very nice. So how is the rod held up? Just wedged between the sides and the rubber feet keep it from slipping? Or did you make an adjustment at one end? Are you planning the rest of the windows now? Nice work.

Glad you like it. I figured I'd start setting up for my future micro camper ;)

Rods are all just cut precise and wedged between each window 'frames'.
The rear door are the easiest, the rear body windows and front were tricky but nothing some creativity and 3M bonding tape couldn't fix.

Best part is all of it is totally removable, didn't have to drill holes or screws, etc

Here's some more pics

I wonder if any locals would be interested in having a modding meet up.

We could do plasti dip, pvc table legs and curtains, lol

Who's in?!

That's fantastic. So, how is the rod faring? Is it just jammed between the sides and held in place by the rubber feet? Or did you make a change at one end? Do you have any plans for the remaining windows? Excellent work.
