Title: windshield
Post by: Old Norse on October 12, 2020, 11:06:17 AM
Just purchased 1953 CJ3B. Looking forward to build as well as communicating with fellows jeep owners . My 53 cj3b has windshield with divider and 2 panes of glass. Does this mean entire windshield frame was from earlier jeep. If so should I replace or simply replace 2 panes of glass on this build. I am building driver with budget not for show, rock crawling , etc. Thanks

Hi there,

Is the windshield curved or squared at the edges where it meets the frame?

Good place to start. 

I've seen images where some windshields are split but mostly overseas.  More information (and pics) would be helpful.

It sounds like it's a windshield frame from a CJ2.
