    How is the windshield setting tape (from Mitch) get cut on the corners? Any pictures?

    This tape fits into the windshield channel perfectly, so you run the bottom and top across the complete frame length. Then butt up the other side to that, and once it’s assembled the corner will look perfect. I have not found a need to miter the ends

      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 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.

      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!

      Windshield Stanchion
      by Brent
      As I wrap up the top wood kit install, I'm working to assemble the header cover, visor, windshield, etc. to make a good fit. For the windshield stanchion/post, I noticed that there is nothing to accept the top screw. Any thoughts? Thanks!...

      Windshield weatherstrip installation
      by Paragon
      Windshield glass, weather seal around glass and frame all went together well. Have installed bottom weatherstrip and let it rest overnight to "adjust" for any stretching. What's the trick to installing the two side weatherstripping around the windshield square nuts that are in the channel? Do you guys cut a notch in the bead to go around the nut? Is there enough stretch to get the bead...

      Windshield glass and tape
      by Dennis
      Where do those of you buy your windshield glass from? And where do you get the correct tape for a windshield? The tape the vendors sell is the rubber stuff with no cork. The JS&RG states the original tape for the windshield was a canvas backed rubberized cork material. Most of the vendors sell the rubber with no cork and no canvas back. I don’t see how the rubber stuff could even be used without...

      Windshield and Dash
      by Brent
      In test fitting the windshield on my 30 Tudor, I noticed that there's a bit of a gap (about 3/8") between the windshield "sill" and the underside of the dash. Is this normal or should I make some adjustments? Everything else seems to marry up pretty well.

      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...
