      Yea after all these years there were no guidelines and then they magically appear. That's not cool and should be exempt

        Where does it state the location on the earlier revisions? I guess i'm blind and anyone i asked at the time could not answer that question.

          We are talking about the winshield glass etching and the location of the bug.

          The newest revisions has the proper location for the placement on the windshield.

            For those that are interested you can order the kit with your proper build date from Mike Driscoll. Here is his Ebay auctions for them.

                  RGJS 10-3 shows "Windshield Trademark Location" as per the first photo attached. I want to have the trademark as shown in the second photo (from 10-3). It height would be greater than 7/16". It is to be centered 1-3/4" from the left edge - great. What about the distance from the bottom? Should it be 1-1/4" to the bottom edge of the trademark and I should just ignore the 7/16" measurement?

                    Neil that is what I was thinking. 1-1/4 to the bottom of the bug. Don't take my word for it, someone from the JS will see this and answer it for you.

                      Ok the judges are NOT going to use a tape measure you can be sure. Here is what we are looking for on the outside of the glass. You cannot of course get it is between the glass Luke originals. But this could help you Neil and everyone. Also we are 1-3/4 from the outer edge of the passenger side and APPROX only 1-1/4 from bottom.

                        So the exact location is not critical? Different bugs are different sizes

                        I do stained glass & know how to do it. I'd use my Harbor Freight Plug Cleaner, for a sand blaster. I once blasted a whole carbonator with it! (If I speld right, someone would think I wus an IMPOSTER!)

                        Mitch its not "critical" to the exact measurement BUT at the same time you want to keep within the parameters best you can

                      Hmm.... I have found out that the image in the RGJS is actually for a 1930-31 quarter window taken from Vincent Falter's site at http://www.fordgarage.com/pages/glassdetails.htm. That is why the image does not look like a windshield and the trademark shown is not valid for a windshield. If the measurements are also correct for the windshield glass, then the trademark will be about .3" less in both direction after being installed in a windshield frame.

                      FYI - I am writing an article for the Double A'er (Ford Model AA Truck Club) about windshield assembly A-79405 (for 79-A, 82-A, 85-A). It would be good to have valid information in the article. I have created the attached for the article (subject to change if incorrect).

                      About a month ago or so there were some questions on the BUG on the windshield and location, I was asked to take pics from our 29 roadster and did so. Hope this helps some out.

                          from the beginning. Laminated Safety glass bore a trademark on them. With that said, Wind Wings after 1930 also had them

                          Ok thanks Mark you answered my question I was wondering if late 1927 model t Fords had them, so this was on the laminated safety glass not the original heavier plate glass used earlier before safety glass came out. Thank you very much. I am really looking forward to the judging at my first Model A national.

                        by wrndln
                        I bought some setting material from Mitch several months ago. I will be installing the glass in the frame for my 29 phaeton soon. I am wondering if I should use any liquid, like something slick, to help the setting material/glass go into the frame. Maybe the glass/setting material will go into the frame OK with nothing, but I am not sure. I have never installed windshield glass in an open car...

                        i took it completely apart when I was in high school in the 70s and finished it by the time I got out of college. It isn't a show car mainly because I drove it as a daily driver to my first job. Most things are correct on it but it needs going through before I fire it up. I already put new tires on and will check the usual things then try and start it. Things sure have changed since I tore it down...
