Even though the original rear side glass for the 166 fit terribly, I used them as a rough outline to make new pieces from plexi-glass. It still took 4 hours of sanding per side to get it to fit tightly. These windows open at the rear for ventilation and the reason Touring made them from plastic is to allow them to bend outward without a hinge as the cam mechanism pushes it out. Crude. In the photo with the drawn outline you can see the original shape being so much smaller than what it needs to be in order to fit properly.
