So, being grounded by Corona-virus is letting me get a lot done on my restore. I will start a thread over on the Restore/rebuild page when I can figure out how to get pics from my iphone to the computer.

I need to get a windshield frame ordered. I know a good used OEM would be best, but they are hard to find in decent condition and expensive. That said it looks like Omix and Crown are the two choices. Keyparts is not making them right now.

Any advice on which one or is there another choice? Is the rib/no rib/two ribs an issue?

It looks like fit for the glass and seal has been an issue, any advice?

I haven't seen as many issue with the frame/glass seal as the windshield to cowl seal. I've used either a crown or omix before and the new windshield fit fine. It took a couple cowl seals to get one that fit properly. Dawn and Jody Abbott have a source of a good seal/gasket thing.
