We have a suspicion that out there in reader-land, there are plenty of current Chrysler 300 or 300C sedans sharing garage space with classic Mopar muscle and serving in the role of quick, comfortable daily transportation. One of our few complaints about the LX platform is that its high beltline, and subsequently, short windows can make that comfy, spacious cabin feel surprisingly claustrophobic. A brilliant (pun intended) solution is as close as an authorized dealer/installer of Classic Design Concepts' (CDC) Glassback roof panel-think of it as a sort of light-transmitting diode, which converts that cave roof of overhead tin into an eye on the sky, all without roasting occupants in the process.

The laminated Glassback is comprised of two panels of safety glass sandwiching a reflective layer that bounces back 99-percent of the sun's UVB rays, so you won't cook while taking in the panoramic view. The huge glass section is more than 4-feet-long by 3-feet-wide and is finished with a stainless steel cap for an upscale look befitting the 300's station in life.

Perhaps best of all, you won't need to sweat the thought of can-opening all that roof sheetmetal yourself because CDC entrusts the job only to their own in-house installers in Novi, Michigan, or to a network of authorized professionals nationwide. Just the same, we thought you might be interested in seeing the major points of the installation process, through which you can also get a darn good idea of just how much thought and engineering went into the Glassback system in the first place. As with any of the CDC products we've encountered, we came away suitably impressed with the Glassback's design, fit, and finish. Let there be light.
