I found a source of glass a few years ago and lost it, it was in Ohio. Side glass is no problem as it is offered repro (the side glass vendor I found is quality. Perfect bevel, factory tint (if desired) and the logo etched onto the glass) .
I have not forgotten you. I had the source of vintage glass just a few years ago and have lost it. I will keep searching.Re: '57 glass

Meanwhile, look over -THIS WEBSITE- as it will give you additional sources of restoration parts.
Yes, I have found the site, and asked from All the places mentioned there.KULTULZ said:

They are first place to say they have it. Now I'm trying to figure out how to ship it.
On another board I participate in, the forum owner (correct term?) lives near Berlin. What small items he needs he has found USPS Ground to be the cheapest method. For something as large as a windscreen, his suggestion was to find someone nearby (say a speed or auto parts house that imports regularly) and inquire about having the item included in his container.Any suggestions about transportation is welcome.
That's the way I'm going to go, there are some guys transporting automotive stuff here. But they are located on the coasts of US. In Florida, Oregon and somewhere in north-east. But Ohio is not quite near to any of these, so at least one shipping to coast has to be arranged with selling company.KULTULZ said:To find someone nearby (say a speed or auto parts house that imports regularly) and inquire about having the item included in his container.
