Thread: I'm at a FRIGGIN' loss about my Countach side windows

    I'm at a FRIGGIN' loss about my Countach side windows

    I'm looking on what to do about getting side windows for my AFI Countach. I've talked with Trevor and his side windows have not arrived yet. Does any one have any help. I would really love to go with curved, but I may be asking for too much. Thanks Jason

    Can't you just get some glass cut to fit your frames?

    Flat glass. But I was trying to avoid that. To have glass cut I believe it then has to be tempered right?

    The glass has to be tempered (safet Glass).In the event of an accident it will break into a million little square like shapes.Have you tried leaveing a post on Lambo Lounge?

    Did you make your window frames ? Do you want the bottoms to go up and down ? I'm just about to that stage on my 25 Th. build. I've been told that If you cut glass to fit the frames and then send it in to be tempered it will curve some any way. They also told me that they can control the way it curves some. Also they said that they can tint the glass with green or blue your choice. These things I don't know I've just been asking questions and this is what I've been told. I've got the same expectations that you do we'll see what happens.

    Thanks for the reply everyone. I have made my frames. They are aluminium and they have a slight curve. I tried to post pics but it didn't work. I'll try again Tuesday. Is this true about the glass possibly curving slightly during tempering? If so that would be ok with me.

    Thanks again Jason

    Here are a few of the car about 6 months ago. I have the car in primer now and the proper wheel flares on since these pics. Just finishing up prep for paint and getting the interior ready. I will get some more pics this weekend.
