WTB New front & rear windshield- Ebody
« on: October 13, 2020, 10:24:57 AM »
Looking for a new (73 barracuda) ebody front and rear windshield. I am located in Toronto Ontario.
Also has any one brought one over from the US ? Do I need to be concerned about it breaking

I bought a new one from a friend who was running a body shop in Hamilton a few years ago and he got it from his glass supplier. Try calling some of the many glass shops in Tarana and you might get lucky, AND avoid shipping/breakage woes as well. Good luck  :cheers:

Yes: Glass shop for the windshield for sure. For the rear window might have to call a restoration parts place for an AMD or other.

Check the thickness of the glass. Not sure what originals are but I believe the reproduction I bought was a little thinner than original.

When I needed a windshield for my 73, the local glass places could only get tinted glass.  I had to get clear glass from AMD.  I bought it through Dave at Roseville.  The first one showed up shattered.  I watched the guy unload it and he wasn't very careful with it.  I made sure to check it for damage BEFORE he left.  I noticed it was broken right away and refused the shipment.  Dave got another one sent out right away.  That one showed up fine.

You definitely need to be there when it's delivered and check it right away.  If the delivery driver leaves, they can claim YOU broke it if there is an issue.

Yes, you can get a windshield locally from just about any glass shop, they will be thinner then stock for sure. I switched to using AMD glass, much thicker like the originals.

The rear window will have to come from the aftermarket like AMD.

In Toronto, you're best bet is National Moparts in Beaverton ON....it take him 2-3 weeks at least to get AMD stuff in, so order it in advance as soon as you can.

I've bought tons of Glass from them with no issues of breaking, he might have a windshield in stock :dunno:
