1971 Brockway 358 windshield question...

Postby crashcrawford » Thu Jul 03, 2014 5:33 pm

So the '71 Brockway 358 that I'm purchasing has a cracked windshield. To buy it in Delaware, I have to pass inspection one time to transfer the title. The center, large, piece is what is cracked. Do I just call carglass places? Do I ask for something else? Can any automotive place do this? Thanks all.

Chad, I would put a wanted add in the Brockways wanted section here. Chances are someone very close to you will have a good used one. This will be your cheapest alternative and if you don't want to install it yourself, any glass man can do it for you Paul

If you cannot find one near you. I would call about any auto glass shop. It is only flat glass and can be cut easily and very cheaply. If you never did it they could install for a small fee. Joe D.

For my Dads 361 I had our local glass guy cut me a new one. Like Joe said it's just flat glass. I also had the guy install it since I didn't want to take a chance a crack it. The corners windows make it a little bit of a challenge to install...
