All.....

I have a Top gun Diablo Roadster, I recreantly bought AGP windshield and it is about 3-4 inches too big and sticks out at the roof. I am sure someone has ran across this issue. I was wondering if someone can shed some light on this. I am sure you don’t just cut the glass. I am thinking making the bottom part of the windshield go more into the body but was wondering what was done to accommodate this, did you cut the fiberglass out and weld a frame? Any advice is greatly appreciated and PIC is O sooo much better………

Thanks
Yusha
PS I already had a windshield that fits but the AGP windshield looks more OEM hence the change.

Look at Switta's build in the diaries. He extended the top.

Yes, and he did a tutorial on how to cut the windshield down by yourself.

Adrian is setting up a glass purchase. Back in 1999 myselg and a friend sent a real coupe and roadster windshield to a company and had them copied. You might be able to get a riadster windshield made up. It also depends on if its a gen 1 or gen 2 roadster. I bought the gen 1 plugs years ago and they used the coupe windshield

I had this exact problem in one of my early projects and I cut some slits on the lower corners of the body so the windshield corners would stick though the bottom. Big mistake! Eventually the window craked because the slight flex of the body from driving condition kinda pinched the window on either side. I did not allow enough of a opening along with the proper cushening to accomodate the window. Now to think back on it...what a lousy patch job. Thats how you learn, Im sure many of us builders did some pretty crazy things in the begging of are experience. Go ahead and figure out how much of the window you do not need and go to a glass shop who can cut off the sections you do not need.
