      Mighty kind of you sir! Paint should be dry and I'm going to fidgit with the parts and see if I can get it but wont know if correct. Also, the rubber gasket that goes into the bottom of the windshield channel (wind brake, seal against rain) what type of sealant is used to keep that in? All new to me. LOL

    I figured it out with a ton of blown up pics on the net. Now if someone has insight on the bottom weather stripping.


    • #5
      The bottom weather stripping shouldn't need anything to hold it in the channel because the edge that goes into the channel should be wider than the opening in the channel itself. Any I've done have had a small but wider opening in the channel run to use to feed the rubber strip in lengthwise.

        Installing windshield
        by JohnB15632
        Try as I might, I can not get the Windshield to close. It hits against the filler strip.
        I am beginning to think that I have the wrong windshield for my 31 SW 4D TS.

        I have a windshield which is original. I measured the heights in the center of the window and the one installed is almost 1/4" bigger. This different in heights is what is leading me to think that this windshield...

        Windshield openings?
        by DaWizard
        I have been sitting here wondering just how many always run with the windshield open and how wide and for what reason?

        I will start by saying up until a few days ago, I ran mine closed and put up with the reflection of the rear lights and stuff. But since it has been 95° plus the last few days I cracked it open about 1½in., we'll see how that works.

        Model A Windshield
        by JohnB15632
        Successes are coming few and far between. But, today, I was able to put together my original windshield and windshield frame.
        As I will show you in the pictures attached, it was in pretty sorry condition when I started.
        I was most interested in saving the windshield glass, as it has an original 1960/1961 PA inspection sticker still on it!

        Stuck windshield
        by Wilf55
        I have a 1930 Tudor. The windshield is open about 3/4 of an inch but won’t budge. Don’t want to shove real hard. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance...

        Open Car Windshield Questions
        by dmdeaton
        Are there any good links or resources for info on how to adjust and assemble the windshield assembles on a open car? I am taking off the spotlights on the roadster and one stanchion I am having issues with. Mounting holes are too large for the countersink bolts.
        Both lower stanchions don't seem to line up and pull in when tightened. This binds on the windshield. I have the upper gaskets in...

        Windshield Rattles
        by saxman657
        I'm noticing more rattling from my windshield on my '28 Tudor. The rattle is definitely the windshield glass against portions of the windshield frame. Does anyone know of quick fixes? If not resources when it comes to pulling the frame from the hinge, the glass from the frame, cleaning, and reinstalling with new setting tape and gasket? Definite rookie when it comes to this area.

        Windshield color
        by Dennis
        Reading the Paint and Finish Guide, for a 55-A, (Tudor), from 1928 thru April 1929 the windshield frame color would have been, or could have been the same as the belt & molding color. Or for the entire year it could have been just the lower body color. So can we say the windshield could be either the same as belt or could be same as lower body? My car is stamped 2/29 on the subframe. Now if...

        31 Roadster windshield install questions and help
        by old31
        I have watched the videos and done a search on installs.

        Which material is correct?

        The material on the left is what I took out. The edges do not appear to be cut, and to me it looks like the right stuff. On the right is Brattons and that you must cut the inside and outside after install. Why is it so wide?

        I put silicone on the glass and it just drags and tears...
