Hello to all, I am currently here in the UK and don't have what I need in front of me to clarify a technical issue and wonder if someone could supply the overall size of one half of the front windshield from a 1953 1/2 ton pickup please.
We have here new procedures for testing older vehicles and a requirement is that the front windshield has a product mark on it ECE 43 R I am fairly certain this is not available.
A new front windshield from a "land rover" that does have this ECE43R mark will be cut to the same shape as the chevy and I need to make certain the "land rover" windshield is large enough in the first place.
I would like to take his opportunity in saying what a great and resourceful site STOVEBOLT is and long may it continue.
Thank you for your help in this matter.
Regards Steve
