    Greetings vanners!

    Does anyone know of a good source for glass? I'm having my 1967 A100 Sportsman stripped and repainted soon.

    I went through the forums for sources of new rubber gaskets/molding, but I didn't see any links for new glass. Any recommendations for windshields and all replacement windows?

    Cheers!
    Mike

    there is no aftermarket a100 glass, where ever you live talk to the streetrod gang
    they can tell you who is cutting laminated glass in your area,
    the front windshield is flat  laminated glass, i would suggest a tinted glass around 20%
    the old shops can cut the windshield glass in no time at all, you will need a old piece for a pattern,

    That makes sense, thank you. I suspected that might be the case since it's all straight pieces to cut anyway. I like the 20% tint idea -- might even look at 25%.

    Thanks,

    I had the windshield rubber reproduced about 20 years ago since then everyone got on the band wagon . Most of them come from the same place.
    The only problem I encountered was older glass was a bit thicker so it sometimes was not a tight fit in the rubber. If you are having new ones cut and installed make the glass shop aware of that. It's not much but it's like a 2x4 isn't a 2x4 anymore 1/4" plate isn't always 1/4"
    The advantage I had reproping things was I had a bunch of these vans so I could test fit everything so I knew it was right Second try was Brian Pres of the A-100 club he got the second one to try
