    Flat glass windshield installation

    I went to Binswanger first. They said they would make me whatever glass I wanted but would not install it. I tried several shops and asked each person when they said no…. “Who should I call?”…. They all gave me a name of another shop that said no. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk in

    Flat glass windshield installation

    Flat glass windshield installation

    Ok, More reading up on this. The factory painted fritting is a ceramic paint that has to be baked on….. way hotter than my oven can ever reach (close to 1000 degrees). What I am leaning towards is either a light sand blast (or etch) on the edge, adhesion promoter (optional), then black...

    Flat glass windshield installation

    Ok…. I am learning as I go…. Please add input or corrections. I found out that normal windshields are painted on the edges (grit band) to protect the adhesive from UV rays, to hide the appearance of the adhesive, and the dots helps with transitioning the heat from the edges to the glass. It...

    Flat glass windshield installation

    Found a video showing somewhat what I was thinking of doing. These windows are obviously different, but the edge trim and gluing are similar to what I was thinking. I won’t have the black ceramic coating on my glass, so I will have to make sure I can glue straight to the glass. I planned to...

    Flat glass windshield installation

    I have had a few windshields replaced and what I noticed is the glass never touches or is bonded to the edges of the recess. They always shove a rubber strip in the recess gap to give the illusion that the gap is filled. I think they do that so the thermal expansion difference does not cause...

    Did you put the pin through the hoops or is it pin on pin? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Flat glass windshield installation

    At the risk of hijacking my own thread….. I am considering adding a wiper to that glass. Anyone have experience sizing the system? My guess is you measure from the motor hole to the center of the glass to set the arm length. Then manually sweep the arm to figure out what wiper fits. Then...

    Flat glass windshield installation

    I thought about doing something like this. I even thought about having no recess. The glass is going to be 10’ off the ground, so I was considering just putting some stops on the bottom and slapping it up there, then “caulking” the edge with a clean bead. I also thought of painting the steel...

    Flat glass windshield installation

    That sounds like a really nice idea. I will get a quote….. one thing to keep in mind…. I am cheap…it would really have to be inexpensive. Thanks for the input….. I will explore this option. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Flat glass windshield installation

    Ok, this is not an FMTV specific question, but since I spend most of my time here, I thought I would ask here. I have some 16ga steel that I want to install a glass window into it like an old flat glass windshield might have. The glass is aiming up at 35 degrees. It will be hit with driving...

    Winch question

    I started wiggling the pins and after a while they started moving. I think they were painted in place. with the spring fully compressed, I don’t get very much space to move the cable around the end. the intent must be to snake the cable past it because the end is way fat. has anyone tried...

    Winch question

    Yes, that pin (80) is bent on my truck on both forward and rear ends of the winch. I think they pulled the cable back until the end hit the pins. Ok, so just compress the pins to free them up. Since mine were bent, I wanted to know what to do before I start bending and prying on things...

    Winch question

    No, the winch. When I roll then cable end all the way to the winch drum, I cannot get the end loose to flip over to the other side. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    He probably is using a battery balancer/equalizer to provide the 12 volts. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Winch question

    How do you get the pins out to reverse the direction of the winch? Mine are bent and I am not sure how they are supposed to work. Any videos out there? @Ronmar @Plasa Thanks in advance! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
