Windshild Frame

Recommended Posts

Stefani,
 
WOW, what a mission, you deserve a medal.  I wonder how many others have been removed or how many people know  the frame comes out?  Whats the frame made of?  Timber and metal sheeting? I thought the whole frame would have been metal and welded in.
I wonder if  my 38 Lincoln Zephyr convertible is like that or if  its  only peculiar to the continental.  I will  have a close look at my Zephyr  .
  An unusual build !?

Most of the K open cars were built like this and in the case of mine it is an aluminum casting, quite impressive

I was surprised to hear that it was removable also. I think that having a seam there would be a source of leaks that could lead to rust of the cowl.

 

Tom Overfield, how was it sealed to prevent rust problems?

I just bought black silicon,  masked off the seam and using the smallest point possible just followed the seam while squeezing the tube with a calking gun. Wet my finger, spreaded out evenly. Let it get a skin coat on.silicon, then removed the tape. Not one leak at all and looks great on my blue Continental.
