Thanks, I really wanted it to be as close as I could make it to the original way it was.
I think bias ply tires really give an authentic look to an old vehicle. I get the radial thing, but
they just don't look right to me.

Here it is installed, it seems to seal up really well and crank out nice and easy.

Hi Guys, I finally have the windshield completed and the glass installed.
It turned out better than I hoped.

My friend has a glass shop and found some really cool gasket material
that goes between the glass and the frame and makes the install look really clean.

good work on the frame. They are hard to work because of the complex hollow internals. For curves, I've found that cutting the curve on a flat sheet and welding the outer and inner surfaces along the corners works well. Keep up the updates,

How exciting to have those pictures. You did some very good fab work on that windshield frame.

Ahhh, there's nothing like the smell of diesel fumes in the morning.

Here is a cool set of photos (you may have to zoom in) of the Fargo in the 40ies and later.The little girl in the bonnet is my Mom and the boy is my uncle that really liked the Fargo and drove it a lot. Seeing it again last summer brought tears to his eyes.

Hi Guys,

I spent the Christmas break tackling the job I looked forward to the least. I managed to repair all the rust in the windshield frame.

After 40 hours of tig welding grinding and filing the result was fairly acceptable.

I managed to find some seals for the shocks through an industrial supplier I deal with at work. Its just a modern dual lip seal made by Timken.
I also purchased some new shock eye bushings from energy suspension and they seem reasonably good quality.


I thought I would include a pic of the shock gland tool I fabbed up when I saw the price of and original one.
