Getting the glass back in

One of the windshields I bought in Lewiston ID turned out to be about 1/8″ too thick. I believe it came from a 1971 99 which would have used a different gasket. We tried installing it first and it almost looked as if it could work, but gave up. The other windshield was from a 1978 which had some bubbles in the lamination. While the windshields appear to be identical, they’re not interchangeable.

door strikers zinc plated

The door strikers and the windshield wiper nut/washers were corroded quite a bit so I had them cleaned up and zinc plated.
