Discussion on Fabbing a fixed window in an A

Ok all...so I'm looking for examples or conversation of fixed front windshield for the early models. My project is a 28 Ford Highboy Sedan that I've chopped 3". What I have plans for is to build out the existing A-piller area all the way around and essentially build it up to secure a new front glass. To break it down abit further... I'm not going to use the traditional henged front glass that is held within the frame (I don't have a complete one anyway...mine is missing the bottom rail and the glass is in bad shape so I'll need to replace that for sure anyway.

- I'd like to discuss the profile of a metal channel that the glass would slip into
- What type/profile of gasket would you use for the seal
- How would you trim out the window from the front....I'm thinking that I may replicate the look of the stock frame that had originally carried the glass but fix the trim to the perimeter to finish it off.

Any ideas out there?
thanks
