Strange Windshield Request???
#1
I have a strange, yet practical request for anyone willing to accept Huh
I want to flush-mount my windshield...but I don't have one yet, and chucked the one I took out 7 years ago. I don't have the $ for one at the moment, nor would I use a brand new good one for mock-up anyway. So, my request is that someone who has a winshield out of a coupe (I think they're the same coupe, 'vert, FB???) that can make me a full sized accurate paper template, measure the exact thickness of it, and mail it to me (I'll obviously pay for shipping + a few $ for your time Wink). My plan is to make a template out of masonite pressboard and use it for mock-up. I did this once before on a roof chop I did for my '54 F-100 and it worked out pretty well, I actually installed the "wood windhield", then removed it and the glass shop cut my glass to match the template I had made and it fit perfect!
I know someone out there on this board is willing to do a fellow '71-'73 lover a huge favor, the guys here are the best of any forum site I've ever been on love

Thanks!

I have my window out of the fastback, but it still has all the glue and crap on it. After I finish with the seats I'd be more than willing to help you out if someone doesn't chime in first. I'm hoping to finish the seats this coming week/weekend, then I can clean up the windshield. Maybe next week or the week after? Hopefully that works with your timeline.

That would be great! I posted this with some lead time to when I wanna start this, so take your time. My plan right now is to finish off the bottom of the car to primer and maybe even paint my interior sheet metal before I take it off the rotisserie. Once it's off, flushing the windshield and back glass are 1st up before panel fitting. So I'm looking at about 3-4 weeks anyway.

Just gotta double check if coupe and FB take the same windshield.

Thanks man!!! Smile

Edit: I just checked Mustangs Unlimited's website and they have coupe/vert listed as a different part # than FB. Anyone know what makes than different???

Hahaha! Sometimes, the other times I take inspiration from watching re-runs of overhaulin' on Netflix, or just standing in the garage late at night, staring at the car silently by myself and picturing in my head what I want it to look like. Smile

Fastback windscreens are a different size to coupe windscreens - coupe windows are about 1 inch taller when measured from top edge to bottom edge.
