I ended up having all new glass cut and had logos laser etched by an engraving company here. The only used piece is the rear oval glass. Be careful on how they size your glass and grind your edges as I'm having issues getting the 1/4 window rubbers to fit properly in the corners even with Vewib molded rubbers.

So in the pic above, is that a large Sekurit logo?
And how about below, is this a 57-correct Duro-Glas logo?

Is there such thing as large vs. small Duro-glas logo?

My logos are considered small Sekurit. Pre 55's had the larger logo.

Your Duro glass pictured would be correct for a 57. I don't think there are 2 different sizes of Duro logos but I could be wrong...I've just never seen them.

A little late to the rescue here but I'm a big fan of Autoglym products out of the UK - They have a great polish for glass:

I think LT used that stuff and his glass looked great! At least from this side of the pond, on a monitor Laughing

I'm going to hand polish mine and just get it as good as I can, not much left in the budget to get too fancy.
