Thanks all, it is a great feeling.

As to Dave's question on the windshield corner pieces - the entire windshield came off of a 'donor' boat I purchased ('68 Fabuglass') so the corner pieces were part and parcel of the original winshield assembly, nothing I can take credit for. I did have to 'chop' about 4" off the bottom of the windshield to bring it into proportion with the boat.
This is my first, last and only boat build.

I was going to ask you the same question and then I saw Dave's. I have what appears to be the same windshield and it does not have the corners. I guess I'll have to make something...someday.

Jeff & Dave(and anyone else)
You both go to ACBS shows....keep an eye out for the end fittings in the swap meets :wink:

Or advertise that you want some in the newsletter that I assume they have.

I told my wife we needed a three-car garage for my projects...she told me to ask her for permission next time before I buy a house.
