Aftermarket shelves have a problem with one of the front screw holes I do not remember which however rather then try and rework the shelf I moved the nut plate.

You need to move the hole. I did same on my 29 RPU. Other option is to check with Brattons.
I think Walt had some new tooling made to correct several of the fit problems.

Correction: Snyders has the new tooling.

Window tint depends on where you apply it. I put 5* in the rear window, but that is too dark for the front or side windows.

where did you buy them from, as Snyder's says they have made their own repros which are an accurate fit.
