Windshield Glass

Recommended Posts

While reinstalling the door glass one of the doors glass broke on me so instead of replacing just the one I replace both of them with new glass. I am at the point of reinstalling the windshield glass but it has a slight yellowish ting to it.

If I install the original one it won't match the doors for clarity so do I replace with a new one or just live with the color difference?

What would you all do?

doors and windshields are normally made of different types of glass. Tempered glass for the sides and laminated glass for the windshield
My car is a 1931 Packard all the glass was/is laminated.

The door glass I replaced with tempered glass.

I am going to run down to the glass shop now just to see what it will cost to have a new one cut/made.

Thanks for your reply

I believe I would replace the windshield as well.
Back from glass shop for only $85 I order one. Will box up the orginal one and put it away with the rest of the old parts I have saved.

Well off to the last Cruze night of the season. This will be old Bessie first one since I finished part of her restoration.

Tom, Does your old original glass have a makers mark on it? I am trying to find what that mark looks like.... Any help?
I don't know off hand but when I get the glass back I will check for you.
