    Maybe there are studebaker forums or clubs that can steer you. A note, plexi will scratch like hell after a few trips up and down

  6. If you have a automotive glass shop in your town or a trim shop they generally have it in stock. HRP
     
  7. I wonder if I can get some red glass cut....

  8. Never seen red safety glass but I have seen red Lexan. HRP
     
  9. They have red tint film too.
     
  10. I guess whatever I run it will scratch when I roll down the windows....It sure would look grrreat with dark red windows....

  11. I have tinted windows in my DD (not red) with 125k and they still look good. Not perfect any more but the tint has lasted thru a set of regulators and I smoke.

    are those windows flat? if so red tempered glass would be an option. a local place did gray smoke windows for me, and said they could do red or blue too. it was suprisingle cheap
     
  13. Yes! Thats the way I would prefer to do it! Safety glass?
