Re: Chop Top, windshield trimming ["Goodwrench" ]
Cabover or step van trucks anyone? [Ray Cardogno ]

Hi all,
I'm new to the list and have '41 Ford half ton, as well as a '46 stake
body and a '34 dump.
My understanding on the windshield cutting is that it produces a very
high failure rate, especially with the really curved ones like the '56. I
think you want to look for a shop that has a high speed belt sander. I
don't know if they are water cooled or what, but the windshield has a much
better chance of surviving if it is ground down, rather than being cut.

with 53-56 F-100 Pickups and panels for several years now, but have more
recently been getting involved with some of the "stranger" models like the
cabover of which I have one and the milk/bread truck or step van of which I
