Sorry no other than whats in the PDF-file (post #34)
When my buddy Nads did his '59 El Camino, he started with a convertible windshield and built the framework around it. We did it, in his garage and driveway. Not for the faint of heart. IMHO, this is a very tricky process. Some look horrible. (like some of the Gawdawful ultra chopped Ford Shoeboxes) Detroit engineers knew what they were doing and had a keen eye for what looked good. Burnt orange Chevy is well done.
Here are a couple of screen shots from the PDF-file, sorry for the other bits that came with the screenshots.
Thank you Dragginwaggin for some reason I am not able to open the pdf file, looks like they weights on the arms to push the soft glass up ?......................
296moon, Yes, that's what it appears to me too.
I was able to open the PDF file on my iPad, using iBooks.
