Re: [T3] Windshield, Part 2



Windshields are still available in the green tint, and probably clear too.
Should run about $125.  The Cal look seals of recent manufacture will all
crack in short order, the better of the NOS style dont seem to, but there
are 2 kinds available, one with a short lip that wont seal and one with a
longer lip that will.  Marks bug barn has the  correct ones available. Not
to plug them haphazardly but I had him go out and measure one before I
bought it and it was the long lip style.  I think there around $40 or so.  >

Replacing the windshield is a much more difficult task than any of the other
windows, because in the US they arent tempered and crack easily. The
Professional guys at the glass shops have *always* broken one on the first
attempt when doing my cars... but when they break one, and its a new one,
they have to pay for the next one they get and you dont. So its not worth
your trying to install one if its a new one.
