Thanks Warren. I'm interested in a set if the new owner is willing to do a run.

Default Hardtop glass

I'm going to be doing my hardtop soon, put me down for a set. They are clear glass, no tint, correct?

Default No call back

It's been a couple of days since I called the new owner. I can't and do not have the need or the motivation to solicit the new owner for the molds or to ask him at what production number would it make sense at. I think they are really nice even though I have not installed mine. We have had a plastic window convertible in the family motor pool and a glass one and there is no comparison. If there was a bigger number of ready and willing buyers it'd be easier as well.

If the guys sells his molds you still need a oven . I think this guy is set up only to do deep pocket one off's for exotic movie industry types.

If I break mine during install I might become more motivated

Default Glass

Yes I was wondering the same thing. Does anybody know anything about hardtop glass and who or where it could be ordered?

Default Another thread

The mold is owned by the current owner of a glass shop in Burbank he bought the business from a tiger owner named Lee Allan . Leepear a forum remember here bought his car and had a run of glass made by the fella that retired and sold the business.

I contacted the business twice and asked him if he would consider making another run and I did not get past the secretary apparently it's not important enough or worth his time. I would believe that it would be a worthwhile project for the club to have the mold because I bet you can make plastic windows with it too. If anyone wants contact information for the glass shop or would be interested in a set of glass windows please contact me.

Hi Warren,

Great idea to get the mold, thanks for thinking of it. I'm interested in a glass set and happy to contribute to buying the mold and getting glass made. Thank you!
