Last week I took my old window glass to a shop in Philadelphia, and they made a new set from laminated safety glass. It was done more quickly than I expected, and for less money than ordering it from a vendor. The shop also installed the windshield glass into the refinished frame.
While I was waiting for the glass to be made, I attached the windshield hinge and trim strip across the top of the windshield opening. I also attached the rear bumper brackets to the frame, first painting the bolts that hold them in place.
After bringing the new glass home, I installed the rubber weatherstripping in the windshield frame, and installed the frame on the car.
The next stop is to install the (fixed) rear window, and start installing the rear (crank-up) quarter window regulators and channels. But that won’t happen for a few weeks- I leave on vacation in a week, and there’s too many other things to do before then.
