I'm not a truck guy by any means, but this has my attention! In fact, I might just break down and get the shortbox version of this it has me so tempted. ;)

Interesting video, but UGGGH-----the fellow narrating says the first Corvettes were equipped with a "V6". :rolleyes:

 

NO! Get it right! It was a STRAIGHT six!

Be thankful you're not trying to make the windshield for something like a '59 Chevy.

 

Ha! You got that right! That's one thing that stopped this right in its tracks!

I absolutely hate the kit glass as it's way, way too distorted, and cars like this scream out for glass to be as clear as possible. I did since get a vacuform machine, and I was able to mold a fairly reasonable windshield. Need some more practice though as the plastic I used wasn't quite the right type I like. Then there's that rear window to deal with.......................... :o

I looked at this the other day... Say, how did you get that big gap at the top of the windshield (upper corners)? Or was that before you glued it in place?

 

Naturally, everything you see on that page was still under construction...........on the finished model there are no gaps. :rolleyes:

As a big believer in Future and what it can do, I'll echo the sentiments of others here and tell you that Future will NOT hide cracks! Slight scratches yes, but not full on cracks.

 

As Snake said, making your own windshield is not difficult, and if you click here (scroll down a bit), I have a mini tutorial on how I made the glass for a '63 Chrysler Turbine Car. Some patience is what's really needed, but it can be done. ;)
