Here's a couple shots of the windshield. I just had glass installed this week by a local glass shop, ordered the gaskets on Thursday and they arrived today. Put them on and voila!
I know you probably cannot see the glass, but at least you know it's there because of the gasket.
Only need to drill for the four attachment bolts and I am all set.
I cannot pull it out until after Dec. 20th when my landlord's business closes for the season. (Christmas Tree farm).
Did you use the original brass channels or rubber.
I used the original brass channels. And I specified "No Identification Marks" on the glass.
After the 20th, if I can get it to run without the accessory hot air pipe, I'll pull the car out of the shelter and take some shots of the windshield in the day time. I finally found a set of stanchions that were not bent. I believe them to be NOS (they didn't appear to ever have been attached to a car), and the rubber channels were complete. So now I have like three sets of stanchions, in varying states of use.
The hot air pipe I have (reproduction) does not fit the manifold or carb correctly, so I've never ran the car with it. Oh, well.....
OK 5:15 pm and the windshield is now permanently affixed to the car. Bolt holes needed some nudging and bolts slid in with a gentle tap.
I promise pics will be forth coming. My car has come a long way since April of this year.
Is your garage heated? You probably wont need it if so.
I have a portable electric heater in there right now. One of those Stanley contractor jobs.
