Anyone have a source to replace my original glass with modern safety glass in my Coupelet? Both pieces are rectangular in shape.

Thanks

Philip, its flat glass any place that cuts glass will cut some laminated glass for you. I will likely cost more if you go to a auto glass place or they know it's out of a T . Also make sure they smooth the one edge that's exposed.

Califunny law requires glass shops to put a "bug" on any window glass for automobiles. Bug is the glass shop term for that deeply etched spot in the corner to identify the glass as safety glass, and often advertises the manufacturer name.
Tell them that the glass is for a custom cabinet that the size and thickness is critical and the edges that need to be smooth are exposed. That way they don't have to put that unauthentic "bug" in the glass.
(Some glass shops do appreciate antiques and will do window glass without a bug. Usually for cash and no receipt. A few I used to deal with knew what I was doing but liked my "shelf" better.)
Drive carefully, and do enjoy the holidays! W2

I had some glass put in for my windshield by a local glass shop. Looks good.

Someone advised me to get brass window channel, I couldn't see how it would have fit in, the glass shop just used the black bedding tape and it looks fine.

The safety glass today is about .030 thicker than the old stuff. The specs for your coupelet should be in the Ford glass book. The glass shop will leave the safety mark off the glass if you ask them to.

When I had my glass cut for my '14 Touring, I specified that the safety marking would be displayed to be read, from the outside, on the lower right corner of my windshield. Both pieces.
