I have cut and shut windows on many standard cars to save a few grams. Vac forming over the top of the original piece and then cutting and glueing the windows back in place individually saves more weight and retains the standard look...again I have done that several times now.
I suggest it would take an eagle eyed judge to detect the difference.
Grinding or cutting the centre section out of the original piece can lead to cracks and breakage....ask me how I know.
I agree Tamar, some details can be hinted at. Although many scratch builders get a shock when the camera shows the flaws in their work that the naked eye does not pick up on.....ask me how I know!
I have been creeping forward with a suitable vac form interior for Gio. Possibly a Mk3 version could yet emerge. This one was taken from an old right hand drive piece that also was to the correct dimensions.....that Bentley seems like a long car.
