NEW INTERIORS This is a good reason not to chop a truck like this... The truck HAS to be built around the chopped glass... Or you WILL have problems down the road,, Seen way to many for sale on ebay WITHOUT the windshield..Good luck... I feel your pain..

It is definitely green. It really looks like it has nice depth and looking at it under different light it really changes.

ogre i hate to be the bearer of bad news... but there is no way to make a windshield for your truck.
the proper way to chop a task force truck is to cut a windshield and then make the frame fit the glass.
you recommended auto city to another member 18 mths ago and said you had a windshield cut for your truck.
you'll need to make your frame fit the windshield you have cut.

his truck when he brought it home in 2006



there is a builder that recently chopped his truck on the 68-72chevytruck.com forum that chopped his truck and then tried to cut the glass for it.
he learned a hard lesson as it was a nice truck before he chopped it.

there is currently a 59 chevy truck on ebay with a lexan windshield that i doubt if you could license in any state.



many a task force truck has gone to the scrap yard because of a poor chop.
hopefully you have not painted your truck, with luck you will not have to modify your doors much

speedbumpauto on the chevytruck forum has this truck
he made the frame fit the glass
they do look nice chopped, though at a gimpy, 6'4'' i wouldn't be able to get in or out of it

oldmanchopper That is correct . i made a template and sent it to auto city classics and there cutter broke 3 or 4 windshields trying to cut it.

MARTINSR Has this truck had a windshield in it already? Because if it has been chopped and never had glass, there is a good chance you are going to need to do some metal work to make the glass fit. The lower corners come up short when the top of the glass is cut off and the window gets laid back.
