I have not called up any supplier yet because I want to know my choices before I do. What are some of you using for the covering on the brakets that keep the windshield off of the hood when it is layed down? My windwhield has been cracked right in front of the driver for years. Texas requires a vehicle inspection and mine is up in March. I figured I should get the glass redone now so I don't have to get it inspected twice in one year. I had the glass shop pull the glass on Monday. I have started stripping the paint and welding in the 48 rivet holes left over from the hard top installation. My pads look like they have some kind of felt material riveted to them. They are very worn and several different colors, so I want to replace them. I also need a new rubber between the windshield and cowl. Who has the best price on that?

I have been using a chemical stripper for the last two nights. Why does the Civil Defense applied white paint come right off and the stock green not even bubble or scrape off? I'm thinking about just leaving the green and priming over it. It is applied very well. Thanks

When I was at Vintage Power Wagons, I talked to Dave, the owner, about the windshield pads you are looking for. They sell it off a roll of the stuff that they cut and send you. I think it was $5 or so...need to ask them for sure, but it is the same stuff that was on there originally and looks like brand new...it may be used on other mil vehicles for the same purpose...he knew right away what I wanted and went and sliced me off 2 pieces.
As far as the paint...I have never tried stripping it myself, but I think just about everyone who has reports the same dilemma...really hard to get off compared to other paints and if its in good shape, why not leave it...I know several guys have just left it and I have never heard someone say they regretted it.

Thanks Jon. I will call VPW about the pads and the cowl seal rubber.
