Can anyone tell me what rubber I should use to mount my curved windshield in my fiberglass body which is a 39Ford coupe with a chopped top. Thanks.

There is a company called Austin Hardware that carries a lot of styles of rubber for that task..look them up on the web..i have used them for varying items of that nature in the past..

I would talk to the company recommended, to see if they have a universal weatherstrip that might work.

If you chopped it, did you do the chop to match an existing windshield? Maybe the rubber for that glass is a possibility.

Have you checked with the body manufacturer? They usually sell kits or have parts recommendations.
