Now that the paint work is completed, it's time for the glass work to begin.
First Alan tackled the windshield frame removal to refinish the faded matte finish as well as to check for any rust under the frame.  Having never been driven in the snow or any winter weather, there was no rust at all under the windshield frame and the process continued after a little buffing and polish. 

Alan will install a new TRF tinted windshield, complete inside door hardware including regulators, channels and door glasses. 

TRF had all new weatherstrips and the new "fuzzy" door seals for around the doors to match the originals, so on they will go.

**** Viewers are warned that if they attempt any mechanical repairs or modifications,
or follow procedures referred to here, they do so at their own risk, and no liability will
attach to either myself or A&E Auto Body, Inc.****

All that remains is a little line and faded paint to cleanup before installing the repainted frame.

New dash pad ready to go in.  Alan won again on this decision, stay with good original.

Jose is getting the frame prepped for primer before Allan paints it and installs new glass

Well, I knew he was very good, but he's also very fast.  This is just after 5:00PM

A great job with the weather-stripping and matte finish to match original color and texture

Alan also buffed up the tonneau cover pins and painted the hold down brackets - details, details!

Check it out!  Instant glass thanks to Allan and the boys.............

These guys really do great work.

And with the mirror, visor brackets and new stainless top cover, the windshield is finished.

Now it's time to install the door hardware and glasses since the doors are now painted.

After installing new glass, regulator and channels and all new weather-strips,
Alan made sure that a new vapor barrier went in where there was none originally.

As you can see, I highly recommend the services of Allan and his crew at:
