Do yourself a favor and replace your windshield with Lexan.
Search CC for info an reviews. I changed mine in 2004 (or so) and it looks as good today as it did when I installed it. I also did a how to post back then, you can search for that for tips.

good luck,
mike

Thanks for the replies.... Zedn. I rang O'briens this morning and it Was very amusing. 1st they wanted my rego number ? Then asked what was an AC Cobra ? After I explained that it was a 1964 replica and the windscreen was the same as a MG .. they asked me for a VIN ? So I re-explained that it was an ICV and the VIN won't find anything. Then they transferred me to another office. The lady there said that could cut a new one for me as long as it was flat glass. I re-explained that it was curved and she said we will contact you soon. This afternoon I got a call from a nice local bloke and he told me that O'Brien would have to source it from another mob. He then gave me the name of the other mob and said it would be cheaper for me to buy from them. The other mob is National Auto Glass. A local as well. I will talk to them tomorrow.

I used to replace mine annually , thanks shannons, as it would invariably crack due to body flex when racing. Windscreens Obrien at Roseville were my go to. Just took the frame and glass to them, replaced in resealed with Sicaflex(?) in 2 days. No payment required, thanks again Shannons.
For info replacement glass for cobras is a stock item in their supply.
