Model T Ford Forum: Forum 2017: Pre-cut glass for a 27 coup windshield

Does any of the vendors sell a pre-cut windshield glass for a 27 T coup? Also, what thickness glass is recommended? I have a partial sheet of glass used for VW windshields that is thinner than 1/4". Would that be acceptable?

Appreciate knowing what others are using for this application.

Thanks,
Les

In had a local glass supplier cut me a '26 Coupe screen from 6mm laminated glass. I think it cost about $60.
He also supplied thin rubber strip (1mm or a little more?) to fit round it in the channel.

And all the small screws holding the frame together came out easily!

But it wasn't easy to reassemble, even with lots of silicone sealant.

Be careful where you buy!! I bought from a vender there at Chickasha afew year ago for my 26 sedan. None of the glass fit, they even sent a second set and still no fit. $450.oo done the drain. I ended up buying my glass from a glass shop 3 miles. Buy local!!
