Wing glass removal

Anybody know of a kit you can buy to remove the wing glass on a 1935 sedan standard? I just puchased one, and can't find much on them. Guess there not to many places that deal with after market perts for these lumber wagons, but im not letting this car win. If i have to make the stuff myself lol.

Thanks,

What kind of car are we talking about? I assume a 35 Chevy? If you can't find a manual, post some photos here and we will figure it out.

I am not sure what manuals would look like from that era but later into the fifties just a good old "assembly manual" from the manufacturer works wonders for figuring stuff out.

If it's a Chevy we are talking about I am thinking this would do it for you/

Yes its a 35 chevy. I really didnt make myself clear on the post. Im wanting to remove it for good, and put a one piece glass in. Wasn't for sure if some one made a kit for that early of a car, or if I would have to make it myself. Thanks!

Make buddies with a good glass man. My guy has done wonders for me, about 55 years old and has been doing all my glass. An experienced glass guy will have seen pretty much everything and will be able to tell you through his experiences.

not to hijack the thread but man, there's a big difference between a production glass guys and a restoration one. The one we used to use
was the same guy I saw going to production shops and making a killing. Turns out the guy is not good with old schools that are buffed out and ready to go, but he's the man when it comes to newer cars. I have a feeling we will never find a glass guy that's good with hotrods as most guys doing it are doing production stuff.

I know how you feel Henry, it's a whole different ball game. These guys don't even know how to pull the back glass moulding off a 65 Chevelle!
