    NICE! thats good to hear cause the only people i know personally with the wanlass windshield was this shop called B2 design group in simi vally, they built turnkey roadsters all with wanlass windshields, they said the same thing but wasnt too convinced since they were probably trying to market their product, and now their not in buisness anymore...love it though.
    thanks for the comment!

    Can drive with the top off down the interstate @ 90 and the hat stays on.

    from So Cal

    2" lower than stock on mine. I'm 6'1" and bench seat is bolted right on the floor.
    Works for me. :)

    I'm 6'2" & run Henry's stock windshield, racy or not, it works just fine, especially when using the stock top from state to state across country!!

    I liked (nimrods) so much I built one. You just need to want to do it enough and have some hot rod building skills.

    I am interested in putting a Past tech DUVALL STYLE windshield on my 35 chevrolet roadster as sold by speedway. Problem is I do not know what the center to center on the POST / STANCHION measurement is on the various ford roadster bodys........1930--31........1932........1933-34...........1935-36 .

    I used to have an original Cam Grant "past tech" set of plans with measurements of all the windshield frames he made for fords........its gone walking around somewhere

    My body has a measurement of 41 1/2 center to center on the posts.

    Can anybody tell me which ford year matches up with that measurement, somehow i feel it might be the 32 ??

    There was a guy in Australia named Carter Components but he stopped making his duval style windshield for the 1934--1935 chevrolet.

    thanks ....mike lynch....CANADA
