I need to replace plate glass w/s with safety glass, to take w/s out I assume one stachon has to be removed, is this correct?
Thanks

That would work.You may only have to loosen one side.

Just nitpicking here, but a US built Touring from september 1922 on would have had a slant windshield and may have been titled as a '22 by the state, but Ford would have considered it as a 1923 style Ford :-)

If it's Canadian built, it may well have been called a '22 with a slant windshield - but then it would have both panes swiveling.

Should all be 1/4".

Keep in mind, the original glass was closer to 3/16, and what they have now is slightly thicker. The modern glass will still fit in the original channel, but be careful. It's easy to crack the glass if you aren't careful. It helps to have your glass man sand a slight bevel all around, as specified in the glass booklet.

I think you may find 5/16 (.310)is safety glass, I just did some checking on glass 'cause I'm picking up all the glass tomorrow for my '25 coupe.
