Well the glass guy showed up this afternoon but didn't replace any glass.
It's a long story.......

Ok..
Since we know Mark knows what he's talking about I called Mark with Marks Glass but he was out (it's already late here now anyway). Talked to a super nice young lady who said Mark would be glad to offer help. Even though I'm on the opposite side of the country.
Frscke, thanks for the link.
I'll try to catch him again tomorrow.

That looks very much like mine. Mine is however one piece, completely around the windshield, with the locking strip attached. The view "A" is exactly like mine.
I should've took some pictures this weekend. Too many projects.

I think they're the same.
I am seriously considering reusing mine and installing the window myself.

OK.. the second (or is he the third?) windshield guy came by today. He had the windshield that fits the '94 with him but it won't fit the old style gasket because the '94 was a factory glue-in. He said that the windshield being changed from a newer glue-in type back to the older gasket type was a popular thing for glass guys to do and was good because, in his opinion, the gasket is better. However you have to have the proper windshield to go with the gasket. He sounded like he knew what the deal was and has been doing auto glass for 30 odd years.
He has ordered a windshield to fit a late '70s model so it will match with and we can reuse the gasket. He's scheduled back Wednesday afternoon with the late '70s glass so I'll have more to post then.

Whew....! It's just a windshield ain't it Phils?
