Let me introduce myself again (my original thread died in the HAMB crash of August 2011)..... My name is Chris and i'm a 15 year Master Glassman in Billings, MT. I have specialized in cutting, shipping and installing glass for hot rods since 2005 and take an extreme amount of pride in my glasswork. I have a nearly complete set of NAGS (National Auto Glass Specifications) patterns that go from the early 30's clear through the mid 60's. I cut my glass by hand, starting with sheets of glass that are 6' x 10', then I seam and polish any exposed edges with my wet seamer, in various stages, ending with a cork belt which polishes the edges to a "jewelry" quality. I think my glass is beautiful, and i'm absolutely sure you will too! Ordering from me is very easy! You can either send me a PM, an email, or just gimme a call or text me on my cell phone @ 1-406-690-6467. If I don't get to your call, please just leave me a message and a phone number to call you back on, I WILL get back to you asap! I use my phone a lot for answering PM's and emails and am usually very quick at responding. I can do tempered safety glass too!! I have the great luxury of having a glass tempering facility close enough to my shop I could almost throw a rock and hit the place! I can usually get the order cut and back from the temperer within a few days so my turn around time is pretty quick! Here's a quick lesson on glass types... Laminated Glass- this is what all windshields are made out of, even nowadays, and up until the mid 60's, all the side glass on cars was laminated as well. Laminated glass is made up of 2 layers of thin glass with a layer of plastic like stuff in between the sheets. It's just a hair under 1/4" thick altogether and will get cracks, but usually keeps its structural integrity and stay in place. Tempered Glass- regular ol' 1/4" plate glass that's been heat strengthened. The temperer takes the glass and gets it glowing red hot, then quenches it with cool air, making it very very strong! Its the type that when it does break, it busts into a million little tiny pieces. They used tempered glass for backglasses in cars back in the late 40's and that's why most of the old iron you see from the late 40's and the 50's and 60's still have the backglasses intact. It's strong glass! I tend to prefer the tempered glass in the hot rods i build myself, because of that strength, you should never have to replace it again. I have had customers (and i've even done it myself) actually crack laminated pieces while trying to install them! Its easy to do on a real hot day. Either way, you will not be disappointed in my work. I have GREEN, GRAY, BRONZE and CLEAR glass and my prices are the same for any color, any type. I keep it simple so I can focus on doing a good job rather than trying to keep track of 15 different pricing formulas! Its all about the size of the piece and how much polishing I have to do to it, but at least you'll have some idea what it'll cost ya. Please get a hold of me if you are ready to order and i'll give you the total including the shipping. I'll also bet my prices are at or BELOW whatever your local glass guy would do it for, even with the shipping. I've been buying glass from my supplier for a long time and buy in bulk, so I know I should be competitive. I WILL ALSO TRADE MY GLASSWORK!! (I collect all different kinds of things, i'm partial to GUITARS and musical stuff, for my outlaw country/southern rock band the Knotty Pines! but i'll look at anything as long as I don't hafta feed it) i'm also building hot rods in my spare time so can use lotsa different parts. Lastly, I can do glass for your chop tops and customs too, I just need ya to send me some patterns. PM me if you want some pointers on how to go about making me some patterns, i'm glad to help! I sincerely hope to earn your business and look forward to talking to ya about some GLASS!
