I'm trying to get my 1914 windshield frame ready for glass. I could sure use some close up pictures of a frame and hinges. How many lock positions on the upper frame when being pulled back ? Also is there just caps that hold the lower glass in place or is there a channel that goes across with caps like the upper frame ? I was so sure this would be straight forward but no. Always seems to be these little items that bring things to a halt . Thanks, Bill

RV Thanks. That's what i needed to know. I have the wrong hinge. I knew something was wrong as i couldn't get the upper windshield vertical.
Also now i need to find the lower glass retainer.
That maybe i can make as i have the single caps just need some channel tacked in between. Luck has it i have the upper channel rain guard.
Thanks again. Bill

You could make them, but Lang's and Snyder's already have them accurately constructed:
