Well I'm certainly appreciative of the nice words.. ..and nudge of encouragement,..

That whole cross over old school red headed step child American GM flat 6 to hot rod powered VW was my whole love for hacking it together.... as I noted in the build .. it was like it was meant for me as a lifer GM tech.. to do..

I just wish I had your metal mending work skills.. Applause Applause Applause: .. it would have turned out much more refined.. ... Embarassed

Windshield #3 now at the hands of das butcher . all . Think .well most appendages crossed. Laughing

Good luck...I'd recommend my glass gal...but she just broke #2 replacement windshield for Op X.
But ..in her defense done. ..its not flat glass.
She said it was fine until it cooled down from the laminate melt and sanding.
From a family of local glass cutters..who has served our family well over 40 years both in rental and auto Kustom stuff its hard to really be mad about it..

I have one more used ..but..
....its getting expensive.. and frustrating..

Just on a side note, your fenderless Bug having a corvair engine and all that applies, is wild as hell. It touches off on early hot rod history, Chevrolet, all kinds of stuff. Glad your out there.

Front fuel lines ready to layout. Being aware of dissimilar metals reacting, it's just a layout.

BTW who are you using to cut your glass?... my local cutter has laid down on me.. Mad
She's had my good used windshield for a month .. and I missed my planned Dub Day despider webbing run Laughing

Haven't decided 100% on glass yet. A local place called Allglass in town claims they can cut and edge polish flat laminate.

Before you get too much further, it looks like you need to go for some of those MG triple wiper arms to get enough sweep to clear the windshield. Laughing
