      Okay, I have the flattie figured out...now to finish chopped coupe body. I have opened doors, filled a small amount of bubbles. Big question is..how to mount front windshield. From inside or outside? Do I need to carve grooves on the inside, or make a frame for the outside? I looked for pics of resin wind screen coupes in the gallery, but none focused in on the windshield. Any comments or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    If you take a good picture of what you have just before you want to add the windshield, I could tell more how to attach it. I would definitely check out as many pics on the net to see how the real things are shaped. Hope this helps somewhat.

    BigN.....what all this will eventually come to (in my mind) is this.....
    All of the above, you can groove the inside of the body and mount the windshield or build a frame and mount it that way. Hot wind screen Rods have had everything from original modified or new retro windshield frames to the glue in lick and stick types. If it were me I'd do what I was most comfortable with to obtain the "look" I was after......all of the above are correct.

    Easiest way would be to make a frame using "U" channel styrene wind screen . The frame can be painted body color or chromed with foil, alclad wind screen or whatever. Make vertical posts of rectangular stock and "bolt" then to the body, and attach the windshield in its frame between the posts.

    Like Don said...it's a hot wind screen rod, so anything goes, just as on a full-scale car.
