    I finally got the missing tank filler strip and went to put it in place last night and to my surprise, now the windshield doesn't fit. So either my header panel has drooped from age or I got the wrong windshield with the car.
    My windshield measures 16" tall at the outside ends, and 14" in the center. Could it be for a 28-29? I guess it doesn't matter that much because I'm going to chop it, but I'd like to know what the starting measurements should be.

    I believe the measurements are the same but the top hinges are different..........

    I always thought the 28-29's had a taller roof height.

    Does your windsheild frame have a metal flap on the bottom that points towards the inside of the car?

    Yes, and it is alot lower than the dash rail, which leaves a big gap there.
