Looking for windshield hinges for my '82 40. The ones I have are for an early model windshield frame and they are totally rusted solid. This is the last thing I need before I can test fit the top on it :)

I'll go through my box of extra parts from the PO, I feel like I've got a couple in there, although not sure of the vintage. I'm currently at work, but will check things out tonight.

If they won't fit Marco's rig I'll take em.

Are you still wanting to split a 4x8 sheet of 1/8" steel?

Let me know when you want me to grab the TIG unit.

You spend too much time on this forum Randy..

No problem

Yeah, I didn't get home till late last Friday night and I've been busy since but I'll pick it up later this week.

Let me know when you want me to grab the TIG unit.

Will do, still trying to find a deal on the replacement.

Well folks I checked last night and unless I am looking at it wrong it looks like the earlier vintage hinges have a slightly different pattern on the windshield side... So I do need the later ones..

I just looked at the two side by side and the only difference I see besides the projection of the hinge pivot on the new ones is the new one has holes that aren't countersunk - the hole pattern looks the same to me...

OK, sounds great, I'll take them then! Maybe mine are some weird ones which is totally possible since everything on my truck seems to have been replaced with odd stuff.

how can I get them from ya?

I'll run out to the Post Office and get a flat rate box later. Not sure if I can do a small or need a medium. You can just Paypal me the postage. I'll PM you later when I know what the cost is.
