Welded windshield posts? Thin Glass? I'm gob struck. My E-M for all of it's faults has bolt in windshield frame posts and the best fiberglass in the Replica game. My vintage is 1989 or so. The only thing I might consider to replace it would be an ERA (thin glass and all). When I shut the door on this E-M it sounds like a bank vault. I've owned mine since 2005 and never thought of replacing it. Sorry for the commercial but fix the windshield issues and Drive the hell out of it!

The wi9ndsheild frame is not welded to the car My EM has a bent pipe forming a cowl hoop under the fiberglass cowl. It has two vertical plates welded to that cowl hoop coming out rearwards. The original windshield frame uprights were bolted to out side side both plates. I removed the whole windshield assy. filled the body holes an made new holes in body to the right. The uprights are now left side is now inside that vertical bracket and the right side was shimmed out to the right with 3/8" thick washers
the uprights are 1/4" thick the welded vertical plates are 1/8" thick I figured that moving the left upright from one side to the other equaled 3/8" displacement. But now clamped with grade 8 3/8x 16 bolts, like a former heavy mobile equipment mechanic would .
I'm thinking that those plates will no afford an area for the uprights when at the new correct angle. but I do have another windshield still in the box.
Back in the day EM told me that back when my car was made the bodies were a still moving almost fluid form.
I'm waiting for their call that they are moved and ready.

Hi Mike,

I'll go ahead and post some photos below. The first are the windshield mounts, dr side then pass side. You'd mentioned to me I believe that the windshield was 3/4" off center when you got it and you moved the windshield frame legs from the inside to the outside of the pass side mounting tab and added the spacer to get it closer to center, correct. The first windshield photo gives a good view of how torqued it appears to be overall. Brent

Hi Mike,

Well, you'll be pleased to know the shop is making progress on their move. They've started moving some of their restoration projects over as well as my car. The below photo is at the new shop, while they still have much work to do, it is happening. Brent
