    Default Windshield glass...

    Hey guys,

    Wanted to confirm something I had stored in my memory banks -

    The rubber gasket that holds the windsheild glass in the frame - a replacement is from a '83 chevrolet pickup?

    Thanks,
    Snuffy

    That is what the guy put on mine 5 years ago. '73-'87 Chevy truck front glass rubber.

    Just about any good glass shop should be able to supply a new gasket. I use the one that is sort of an interlocking type. You unlock it, then install the glass. After the glass is in place the bead on it snaps back into place locking the glass in and it appears stock.

    As the windshield (I assume since you didn't specify which piece) can be cut for you at any decent glass place - flat & almost square is easy

    Yep, just find any good glass shop. They can cut a sheet of safety glass for you, usually in the same day. Take them the old shield as a pattern. I had my deuce windshields done that way, and need to get the 715 done too.
