We hired Sue Gray from Grays Auto Glass to install the windshield this morning, she made it look easy.
We had all the trim ready and had pre fitted the weather strip to the glass. We reworked all the chrome and stainless removing all the pits, dents and then did a lot of buffing.

The windshield install is the only thing we as a shop didn't do our selves besides chrome plating. I felt like it was better to allow someone that works with glass install every day do it rather then take a chance of breaking the glass. Sue and her husband Jim install equipment, camper, tractor, antique auto, and race car projects along with every day modern cars and trucks.

Charley good call. I have a buddy here in Calgary that is restoring a 56 Lincoln MKII II and when the shop tried to install the windshield yup cracked it Costly on the insurance premiums when they had to replace AND locate another one.

Restored grill and moldings also restored windshield wipers.
Removed all the dents and scratches and polished every thing.
Used all old parts from this car but did make all new grill clips.
I know not very exciting! HA!
