Any results yet, I took mine off and snapped a side panel in the process (after it was 100% off). Got a new one made and currently at the body shop. Fountain said it was an Imron 555U but since mine is 20 years old I had them mix it to match. I'll see in a few days I hope. Was quoted just over $200 and a few days.

I did get the windshield back and am really happy with it. I have not been able to put it back on yet because i dont have all the hardware. All i need is new rubber washers. I hope to have it put back on by this weekend. I will post pictures when it is put back together.

any pics yet? would you be willing to give a ball park idea of what your expense was to have it done? (For comparison) someone above, said just above $200, I haven't got a quote that inexpensive.

I have not been able to get enough people to help me put it on yet. I dont want to take a chance of scratching or dropping the windshield. I hope to have it put on by Sunday. As soon as i get it put on i will post pictures.

The paint looks awesome. I will have around $700 total invested in the windshield and hardware.

Where did you get your hardware? I want to replace mine with stainless as well (Still haven't gotten it back) and are you putting it on as a whole or in sections?

And what paint code did you end up with? I don't have mine yet but they said it was a fleet color.

Pro,
I got some of the hardware from True value Hardware, and some from a local upholstery shop. My rubber grometts are in great shape so they are being reused. I hope to have mine done this week, Maybe.. and as far as money spent, I'm going to be where the above post is

I had to look at a few different places for my hardware. I boughts some from Home Depot, Lowes, KOI auto parts, and Fasten-all.

I ended up putting the front windshield on with the side corners peices first then put the sides on.

Here are a few pictures from late last night. I still need to silicone around the windshield to make it look better but ran out of time last night. I was also 2 screws short so need to buy 2 more. (I guess i counted wrong) Let me know what you think. I also think it will look better when i get it out in the sun light and not in a garage.
