From inside a painting shed, where heatlamps and a vented roof made sure that the Caddy looked like it was worth the price tag.
This is a room where the actual explosive elements were mixed. In the event of an accident, this glass wall would give way before the concrete and thus direct the flames and shockwave away from the rest of the building.
