I am researching the possibility of finding and installing a Metzger Automatic or Rands Windshield on my 09 Touring. Anyone have any experience in doing this and what issues did you find?

Another interesting question. At least to me, I like the early Ts.
I can't help with the answers you are looking for. But I can kick this back to the top.
I look forward to hopefully seeing some good answers.

I have a Rands on my late 1910 as well as a Metzger as a spare. The Rands was obviously considered an upgrade from the troublesome earlier Metzger or a cheaper option that prompted the change by Ford?

Build sheet indicated no windshield from the factory. No doubt many were installed by the dealers afterwards if the customer wanted it.

At what time did Ford make tops, windshields and acetylene headlights standard equipment, and not extras?

Thomas, according to the Ford Times, as mentioned in McCalley's book, Gas Lamps, top, windshield and speedometer became standard equipment on October 1, 1909, the 1910 Model year.
