Am I missing something. I've been looking for safety glass for my 26 touring and have found all the rubber, frame, and hardware but no glass. It this something that you have to go to a glass Co for?
Ditto here, but I believe the answer is yes... glass company or auto glass, maybe.
Here's the measurements from Ford's book on glass specifications: https://www.modeltford.com/item/T11.aspx
Wow Thanks. Now I need to search my parts for all the hardware.
I took my frames with the original plate glass in them to my local glass shop here in Hillsboro, Missouri (population 2645). They did a great job of replacing the plate glass with laminated glass at a very reasonable price.
Most auto glass stores can help you. That's where I got mine.
Just had mine done for 26 roadster
Auto glass shop
FWIW, Ford specified a maximum thickness of 1/4" and a minimum of 3/16" in the windshield. Most surviving original glass is close to 1/4".
Ford offered a windshield glass specification booklet that has all the specs on it. It's probably been reprinted?
Yes, it has. https://www.modeltford.com/item/T11.aspx
Used to be in the glass business. This should be easy for any decent glass shop to do. Make sure you seal the edges, otherwise you can get some delamination there over time. If they let you watch, the cutting process for laminated glass is interesting. There is fire involved!
Agreed Chris, we cut laminated glass all the time. Used lighter fluid. Right or wrong, it worked
So should I make sure that I get a good seal so my touring car doesn't leak? Ha!!
It's all about the glass. This is the edge of the monocle on my speedster, which was not sealed. (I didn't build it.) There's about 1/4" +/- of delamination all along the edge. Someday, I'll probably have to replace it.
