Over the Hurdle

Our last big worry (other than getting the paint dry in time to transport the car) was whether the windshield would fit. We did a normal plug using styrofoam which was used to make the mold. Unfortunately the mold cracked when the glass was put in. If it didn't work there would have been no time to go back and make another one, and obviously, we can't just order a new one. It would have been a deal-breaker for the auto show...

So there was a huge sigh of relief when it came in and when we put it in and...

it fit.
It may not look great now but give us a few hours to get it polished up.

You guys are making me nervous, I'm glad the glass fit. My thoughts are with you and I'm going to try and come down to the show and see the car in person. Good luck.
