It is home and the accessories are being installed. One question is anyone sealing the lower panel during installation and if so what are you using?

I have no problems full front and full back maybe when I get uppers it will suck in more ,then I will seal it. It does expand and let heat or steam in when you go through deep water.

I used foam pipe insulation on mine but I have custom made front/rear windows, not the flimsy Polaris plastic.

I used 3/8" butyl tape which is gummy, sealing and remains pliable. Easy cleanup for parts removal. This is used in RV camper windows
to seal them.

The little panel that mounts below the back window ( on the stock frame ) its plastic and top corners has 2 bolts and the bottom edge sets on lip of rear of cab and has push pins holding it.

Can you get the lower plastic panel separate from the rear window kit? And does anyone have the part number?

Every time it gets a little hot that panel on mine bows out in the middle about 1/2 inch. I am thinking about putting something in the middle to hold it in. I can't believe the plastic used on this panel expands that much. When it cools off, it goes right back into place.

Yes mine did the same thing. There is about a 1/4" of overlap of plastic over metal in the middle. I used a small self drilling sheet metal screw and fastened that flimsy plastic in the middle to the cage. Works great and is still removable.

I don't have a picture of it, but I made an additional bracket to hold the panel straight in the middle.
