So dumb question but is it removable once installed? How would one get to the battery?

You talking about the fastback? Of course it is removable. And you get to the battery like normal.

Well this is quick. I have the windows in now. You can see how much better it looks with the flush side windows matching the door glass. Rather than how the other fastbacks are done.

I like the autokonexion fastback and I'd still chose this one in a heartbeat.

You need to find an economical way of shipping those tops to the states.

It looks like the trunk lifts off, yes? Can you take a pic or video with it open/removed? Any tech stewards give you any crap about access to the battery? The project is fantastically awesome - thanks for sharing!
