Where can I get windshield glass

Post by Jfmarkham » Thu Apr 11, 2019 12:31 pm

I had two small cracks one in each windshield,I called Langs they don't handle glass they said have it cut at a local glass Co. So I did installed them both and they car has sat since not even started,went out today and lower window developed a crack just sitting there, must be a place that sells these ready to go these were only beveled on one long edge and the three sides that go in the frame were not,they seemed rough and sharp it cracked on one of the rough sides

Take your frames to any local windshield shop they should be able to cut and fit the new glass in while you wait, easy peezy :D I had mine done at Baker Boys glass took about 30 minutes.
Do it right or do it over,your choice. Drive like everyone is out to get you!

I have used 2 local window glass places many times over the years for flat glass replacements, they often can do varied thicknesses and odd shapes in addition to the standard square and or rectangles. I replaced the windshield in my 18 with safety glass for $125. Well worth it.

I took my old plate glass to the local glass shop.

They used it as a pattern to make laminated safety glass. They turned it around in a day for around $100.

We had a tech talk discussion about this place at a Model A meeting last year.

I checked for Model T years and they only go back to 1928.

Might be worth a call to see if they can do T glass.
