    Windshield rubber seal

    Good Sunday morning everyone! I知 looking for a used rubber Bugeye windshield seal for a cut down frame and it will be used to get accurate measurements. Most anything will do.
    Thanks, Rut

    Even better would be to trace the bottom half of a windshield.

    Jim,
    This is similar to what I知 trying to do and I知 making a plexiglass/plastic windshield using the bottom half of the windshield frame and the uprights. I致e got everything cut to height and a mock up cardboard windshield, but the rubber takes up space and I want to plan for that. I値l shoot you an email with mailing info.
    Thanks, Rut

    Very nice color on the MGA. I'll be over at my sisters if not today likely tomorrow as I need to grab my upholstery clips out of her garage. I'll try and get your measurements Rut.
