    Looking great. Your BP is gonna love her new home. Your making good time too at under a month so far and the hardest part is done. Now the electronics go pretty quick if a bit pricey. Good job. And that car looks cool too.

    Thanks! Yeah, I've already done the math minus sales tax and it's going to take a few paychecks to get all the elements purchased. I'm going to need more thermostats as well, and I refuse to use the cheap Amazon ones on principle, so more Herpstats it is. So that, plus the fixtures and bulb guards, plant lights, and UVB fixture/bulb adds up to a pretty penny.

    Haha yeah, that's his old '64 Ford Galaxie that he's basically built from scratch; I guess I come by the DIY gene honest. It's his pride and joy.

    How do you measure for the glass so you know how big it should be to slide in properly?

    The instructions on this particular track told me to measure the space where the track would be seated and subtract 7/16 from that measurement. So in this case, my "window" minus the track was 24 inches, so I subtracted 7/16 and got 23 9/16 for the height. I'm not sure if this is standard for all door tracks or just my track.

    Since I wanted an inch of overlap of the glass for the door lock, I had to measure the width of the window (64 inches), divide in half (32 inches) and then add 1/2 inch (32 1/2).
