Guys, I may be able to help. Right now I am planning a trip to California then Carlisle but scheduling may require me to go to Carlisle first then California. If, if, if, I could deliver that windshield. I do not blame you for not wanting to crate it up, I have sold many windshields and even though I charge a fair amount to crate them, it is just not worth it.

My build still sits in my garage at 60% complete.  My gumshion ran out last year and the harsh winter didn't help either.  I'm going to refuel at Carlisle in May and hopefully get more done this year.  My body is a B&B so I have a few extra problems to deal with but pushing forward.

Jim,
I would take your offer, but I'm in California so i would need to ship it. I understand if you don't want to go thru the hassle of getting it packed and shipped.
May i ask if you completed your car?

Don't know if this will help or not.  I am willing to part with my AGP coupe windshield.  I've got the measurements somewhere and will look them up.  $700 u-pickup.  I refuse to package and ship.  That way you see what you are getting.  South of Grand Rapids, MI.

Hi CCIE,

Did you finally get a donor windshield for your diablo? Let me know, I am also in the same boat.
My diablo has been sitting in the garage for some time due to a broken windshield.

I original got one from AGP years ago, it was 4 inches to long on top and a little bit wide as well. I had it cut to fit my diablo. I guess AGP went out of business since they stopped answering calls or replies to emails. Other option is to buy an original from the dealer...$4500....oooouch! Then risk the chance of having cracked since i need to have it cut. Any info would help.

Drum...

My Roadster is still at the shop getting the v8 swapped (got to love this.... Fracking scam artiest)
Let me know what you find as I would rather prefer a good fitting windshield as well. The windshield on my Diablo fits but still needs trimming on the bottom corners. The AGP glass is few inches too big on top....
I have a Top Gun Roadster same as Corry Davis.....
My invitation to checkout the Roadster is still open. Where are you located? Shoot me an email

Just food for thought.  D&R gen 1 used a cut down lumina van windshield. Gen 2 used a custom windshield based on very similar pattern (was only 0.5 inches wider because it was finished different at the doors). A trimmed lumina van will fit here as well (I know, I have the molds) I also built a roadster of unknown origin. Some said it was a Cory kit, others said it was a mike vetter body. Anyway, different cut but still a cut lumina fit it as well.

Hey Drum, if you've been able to get a hold of Ron Dolling, which of the two numbers listed below is his? I'm in Vancouver same as him, and it would be great to meet up with him!

CCIE ,Ohio is a very feasible trip for me, as we've talked before would be great to hook up and talk shop, at the moment I too am working long hours out of town but I'm sure we could set a time to meet up I talked with Ron Dolling today and it sounds like the NAERC windshield is a fit, but wouldn't mind taking a look at what you've got maybe sometime after the holiday we can make this happen, thanx!

Drumseven....

I am in Central Ohio, I have a Top Gun Roadster with a after market windshield that almost fits. I also have the AGP glass which is few inches bigger, as well as IFG glass that I have not tried out yet. My roadster is getting an engine swapped (lol for the past 2 years now... Fracking mechanics). But if you are in Ohio and I get a few minutes off of work maybe we can connect and you can take all the measurements and try to figure out what the after market windshield is.

Nope!  Not yet.  My opening is not OEM so I am going to see if I can modify it to accept an OEM windshield.  Otherwise I will cut one to fit.  I have a AGP OEM Diablo Coupe windshield already.  Hope you find a connection for your windshield glass.  76mx may also have a connection for your needs.
