    I figure you've been around here long enough to see a few tech weeks. But this is not really the way it works. Submit a tech thread during the allotted time, in this case from now until the 16th.

    *** Tech**** it has always been a problem to figure out how to do the glass when chopping a top, so I'm going to show how I do it. First I wax the windshield that came out of the car, any ol wax will do. Then I use fiberglass and @ layers of matt, just put it right on top of the waxed glass, work out all the air bubbles and try to get it ass smooth as you can. overlap the glass by a couple inches. let it cure ( sometimes overnight). then take a sander , or air hacksaw and trim it too the size of the glass,sand edges smooth. then put the gasket on the chopped car, and trimm the fiberglass template to size, I like it a lil on the loose side, glass won't break if it has some room to move around. then trace the new size onto the glass to be cut and , there you have a nice template, for cutting your new glass. I know this isn't a metal working tech, but the answer to a question asked many times.

    Well here's mine. It is bike related . If i build another one i will use rectangular tubing . I used channel iron and had to take it apart to box it . The table is made out of flooring for a hog feeding floor. The wheel clamp was purchased. I use a 1/2 drive ratchet to raise or lower it.
