I got a phone call a few days ago from Dick Rodwell, just advising me that my 32 Ford windshield was on its way to me. He also explained that the lower stanchions are coming un-chromed so I could grind/tweak them to make a better fit on my 32 Ford Glass body. Rodwell stated that most of the time you need to do a little tweaking of the body or stanchions to get a perfect fit on the 32 Ford Roadster bodies, glass or metal. Just the nature of the breast. Once I get a good fit on the Roadster body, send back the lower stanchions and he would chrome them and send them back.
As for the quality of the 32 roadster windshield, I have to say, it’s beautiful.. once together, it’s a piece of art that will be going on top my 32 roadster.
Now the bad news. Seems my 32 roadster body doesn’t have a eyebrow on the top dash area. Seems that some glass bodies have that eyebrow removed so it’s a flat surface for other style 32 roadster windshields. Well, the Rodwell windshield needs that eyebrow in place for a better fit. So I reached back out to Dick Rodwell and had a pleasant surprise, he manufactures a fiberglass eyebrow piece just for that reason. So I ordered one of those 32 Ford eyebrow pieces as well. I just don’t feel like doing massive glass work to get the fit just right.
