    Default question about welding up gap around windshield on first gen camaro

    I have seen cars (1 in person) that has what appears to be stock glass windshield and rear window but the body has been extended so that no trim is used. Anyone have some pics of this work while it is in progress?

    Not stock glass, but there are glass kits, basically oversized glass, to achieve what you’re after.

    I don't care for the look of the oversized glass.

    This is what I did to my 69, I matched the top of the windshield to the same height as the door glass. I also pinched in the rear glass as well. I using stock glass on everything.
    I'm about 3 months out on completion,

    I am using the original rear glass on my 73’ Mustang, I raised the window frame to make the glass flush with the body and made the space between the glass and frame smaller so it does have a gap as modern cars. I will do the same to the windshield. I actually did this modification way before Chip Foose made that 71’ Mustang with flush mounted windows :D

    Thank you gentlemen, those two examples are exactly what I was talking about. I had not thought about needing to raise the glass for the flush appearance.

    You’re welcome glad that I could help! But think about it, it looks so nice and modern with that flush appearance!

    Talk to a glass guy, see how they want to bond it in, how much flange you need etc. Form up some angle or stepped flanges and tack tack tack.
