    Hi,
    On ebay i see these frames in 2" chopped and chrome from$185 to $500 and
    in parts catalogs up to $600.

    Plain ones are $400..

    I don't expext good chrome on a $185 frame , but i don't build a show car
    so i don't care.

    I may even paint the frame black
    Don't know yet.

    I'm only concered about shape/fitment and if it'S thin steel so that it woobles....

    Like everybody these day money is tight , but i don't want spend my money
    on junk parts....

    Ideas?

    TIA
    Michael

    I've used Vintique '32 Roadster-Phaeton windshield frames chopped and stock. They work well. The ones I got were not plated. The FOGGER

    FYI the inexpensive frame are made in Taiwan, other is USA, slight difference in price may be due to vendors purchasing unplated frames and having the local plating shop do the work. Pricing then is a comparison of the quality of the plating.

    Trautwein stuff is NICE ... and only a little bit more.

    His windshield frames are some of the BEST reproduction pieces I have seen :)

    As I stated above, I've purchased 2 '32 Ford windshield frames from Vintique. Call Derek at C W Moss for conformation. I personally picked them up at the Orange, Ca. store. Both came in a Vintique box. GFY, The FOGGER

    Thanks for all the information.
    The Frame will be for a "for sale" car, so it doesn't has to be perfect.

    Trautwein is the standard in the business.
