Hello Friends,
First ....Happy July 4th
The Gumball Pantera is nearing completion of the restoration. Today the  
body shop called me that the Windshield would not fit back into the frame that 
 it was pulled from in the first place .This is the original windshield. 
Only  piece that is different is the new rubber gasket. The body shop called 
that two  experienced glass men tried to install the windshield .Each time 
they put the  passenger side of the windshield in place on the driver side it 
was near  impossible to push in and they were afraid of breaking the 
windshield.Then they  tried to install by putting the windshield in from the driver 
side. They became  frustrated and afraid that the windshield was going to 
break under the  installation pressure . WHAT ARE THEY DOING WRONG?
