Looking for someone in Kansas to install a new glass. Can't find anyone local to do the job

Lewis Street Glass is the go-to place in Wichita. They did a 1914 windshield for me some time back.

It's not a difficult job to do if you're able to use basic tools. I did my 13 and my 15 and both were very easy to do... just a matter of being careful.

The new glass is thicker, so that makes it more difficult to install.

Be sure the glass company understand that this needs to be done using the brass channel, and the glass must fit properly or it will crack. Too often I see glass installed with some kind of glue by clueless glass companies.

Like the others have said, this is super easy. I always do this myself.

Since the new glass is thicker, how do you get it to go into the original nickel plated brass channeling?

The glass channel is not nickel plated in 1913. 1/4" safety glass fits fine.

10-4 Royce, thanks, I was thinking of a later mid twenties channel, anyway what is the thickness of the original glass?
