    As I understand it, the windshield is usually available from the body manufacturer, and they are happy to sell it to you for about a million bucks. A friend in Boston says he used a newer style Chrysler Sebring windshield that fit quite well. [a bit of bodywork needed at the bottom of the posts] He used a Neon wiper motor/pivot assembly with the Neon plastic trim for the bottom of the glass. I have the Neon stuff, just waiting for a cracked throwaway Sebring windshield to show up at a local autoglass shop. Then I'll make a test fit.
    Another knowledgeable forum member actually had a windshield made for his Koenig version in Montreal. Sandy, are you reading this?l
    And the joke is,<br />when he awoke his,<br />body was covered in Coke fizz !

    360_wannabe.... Who produced your Replica. I may have a glass company that can help you. Would you have any measurements of what you require.

    I dont have a kit ........yet... :

    I just finished getting my quotes on having 360 C.A.D. Files completed.I am negotiating the cost of having the body sculpted in Balsa Foam. From there I will have the bodies made (possibly 2). I just wanted to know as I figured the windshield used for the 512 replica would create a more authentinc look. I'll have to have a closer look at the sebring.

    Any other sugestions?

    I just had the windshiield replaced in my 512 Corson and it took the factory fiero windshield. Granted, it's less than authenic, but it only cost $149 (aftermarket) and they came to my garage & put it in! What 512 are you talking about ?

    What windshield does the hi-tech 512tr, creative cars 512tr, Fancy Cars 512tr*and I believe ck3 512tr use these "extended" windshields. I just wish i knew what vehicle they originated from.

    The Hi Tech 512tr says that the windshield is glass from a very popular car and cost only about $150.00

    I am too intrested in using a diffrent winshield in my testarossa replica. The guy that built the 512TR on this site www.geocities.com/irarref215 used a windshied from a 1992 acura integra gs sedan. I have tried to e-mail him several times with no luck on getting build information from him. As for the Fancy cars 512TR , to my best knowledge he still uses the fiero windshield. As for the Creative Cars 512TR , i talk to the owner now and then, i might be able to get some answers, one guy said you use a geo storm windshield, i have yet to get some measurements to see if any of them will work.

    I've heard of some 512 kits using a windshield from a chevy lumina/pontiac transport

    Hey yall! This is my first post. I DID use a acura W/S with some mods to bring the inner pillars in towards the center. This creates a rather large pillar that you have to look around even though I only widened it about 1". let me know if you need any help.
