    Again I may have missed something in your last two builds but do you do your own paint work? Home shop or elsewhere? Looks really great! Regards, Randy

    Do you add or perform upgrades along the way or just drive them stock?
    Looks great by the way. One of my favorite H.A.M.B. builds...Regards, Randy

    Looks great. That green is really nice and the roof sets it off.

    Noticed you're in Rochester, I've been there 5 times for business, 3 of the 5 were snowed in airport delay trips. Surprised you guys arent all building 4X4's. :D

    Is that green a factory color from some manufacturer or did you mix it up, thought you mentioned earlier in the thread but I cannot find it.

    This is one great build. I love it except it makes me miss my 62 Impala wagon that I sold.

  26. I had a 61 Caddy and my greatest fear was having to replace the windshield...

    No repop available..

    Thanks for the lead. They list for one for my 60 OLDS convertible. How was the shipping cost?

  29. I bought one 4 years ago for my Ford, shipping then was $160 from the west coast. ACC was $175 at the time. Today, around $190-200 would be what I'd expect. Check some local glass places, they may have a local distributor. This is what I tried first from the guy who does my glass work. He was able to get one quote of $1000. My whole deal was around $520.
