My car is also my DD, so I usually don't have more time than over a weekend to install mods on my car. I built my original aluminum bar and clear vinyl boattail in one day. It took 5 days of vacation to build the permanent version of the boattail.

If I had to build the permanent version on the fly, I would have taken one day to strip off the tailgate and construct the aluminum bar frame. If I had to drive it the next day, I would have covered the frame with clear vinyl, hung the licence plate and lights on the back of the covered frame. Then on subsequent days off would have installed the aluminum sheet, lexan glazing, permanent electrical wiring, and the interior.
