I own one and am in the process of restoring it. My paint guy did an excellent job on restoring the original paint but struggled with replacing the split windshield. He finally gave up after going through 4 pieces of glass. The glass is cracked in the corners on the top where the two pieces meet and are joined by the moulding. Chrome strip does not sit properly on the moulding (you can see the moulding bulging out) and chrome surrounding windshield is out of alignment so that wiper on drivers side gets stuck on the chrome. I think the wrong size moulding was used. Any tips from someone who has replaced their split windshield. I am going to take the car to a different body guy. Thanks.
What position should the hinges be in for installation of the hood? The hood is the alligator style. Should they be in the closed or open position? Also does anybody have any tips on this process? The '53 manual doesn't seem to cover this. Thanks!
