    My 81Z doesnt have a rear window defroster and I want to add one. Whats involved? I assume I just need to buy a rear glass with the defroster built in and the switch and wires.....am I missing anything?

    Thanks for the schematic.....

    I would love to hear any tips you may have. Hopefully it would help me when I get around to putting in mine.
