Got a request to post some more pics, so here are a couple. The second is on the trailer ready for the trip home and the first is about what it looks like right now. It's waiting on parts and a new shop in the back yard. Then we will both be a lot happier!
My windshield, ron's folks confirm that it's the proper dimensions, had polyeurethene glued in window panes. The outer frame had been modified with flat stock steel and the glass had been glued to that. HOPING there was an interlocking channel, I removed the one that was cracked any way. The picture above shows the top tube of the outer frame. NO CHANNEL. My question is, can this be fixed, or do I just need to buy a new windshield?
I did manage to remove the glass without busting it (it cracked a little more though). I'll post the how to with pictures on here some day as my glass was installed in the same manner as a modern vehicle windshield. The principles are the same and I used the correct method...mabey it'll help!
