New Windshields Soon for the Berlina/ Super Sedan!

I thought I would post this since it has been a long while and folks interested or owed a windshield we will be in touch soon. It has taken at least 6+ months between ordering and producing the windshields from the manufacturer. We are happy to be able to offer for the first time Sekurit brand with the tooling that has been used for many years we are told. The quality and the fit should be the best and we are confident it will be in the same price range as the aftermarket Chinese we were selling before.
The eta to us is by October. I think they are sailing this week or next to the US.
Thanks to all for your patience. We welcome new customers and will take care of any that were wrong or damaged in the past. This has always been one of the windshields that seems to cause us problems over the years. Realizing Sekurit had the tooling and committing and getting them produced in clear and tint has been a process.

Andrew, if you see this I will be in touch by email shortly . Sorry again for the lapse on this one.

Are you getting any glue in Berlina windshields?

Those are not being offered because the glue in was a US/ Canada only import and Sekurit made OEM for the European model market. I assume you can change over with gasket/ trim? Best bet if you can. You will have a nice new windshield that should fit fine.

I agree with Richard- no call for or reason to use glue-ins on sedans or coupes. Thanks for undertaking the production of these windshields, an important resource for those of us who own or frequently work on sedans, I will have three in my shop this fall and winter.

At least you know we will have them and Sekurit has been making these for decades. We just did not get around to asking and getting these made for a while from them. We will have a lot of clear and green tint for quite some time so no more issues with supply.

Great news! My Berlina is due for a new windshield once I fix the rust.

I'm not sure what I'll do when my lip is rebuilt. I could put the glue in one back, or I have a gasket one complete with gasket and trim. A person can never have too many spares!

About ready to put back my glue in windshield
do the little metal clips go in to hold the headliner?
or is there something else?
installer wants the metal to be bare, so no headliner folded over...
I have 24? clips, seems excessive
lmk if we use all of them
thanks

I am working for Mygrant Glass now full time, responsible for expanding the classic line of glass products. We have committed to carrying 20 Sekurit brand in Kingston, PA and 20 pieces in Hayward, CA. That will be ideal for freight savings for California customers!

These are all gasket type windshields no glue ins - time for getting the trim pieces and doing the changeover.

Any chance of getting Sekurit to produce windscreens for Alfetta GT/ GTV6?

We have under our old ProSOurce inventory aftermarket brand. We will not be carrying Sekurit on GTV6 at this time. But maybe in 2020 we will look at this option.

Pinshaw, I hope someone with more experience than me will reply here--it seems like a bad idea to glue in the windshield on top of the headliner material, but I've never seen what it looks like when you take the windshield out.

I hope to be R and Ring mine (glued-in version on a '73 US Berlina) sometime soon, and would be seeing than how the headliner is attached around the windshield, but others here should be able to say from their experiences. (Andrew?)

Also, very interested in hearing from anyone when they see the new glass.

Yes it cant be glued to head liner, so we trimmed it pretty tight beforehand, probably left a 1/16-1/8th edge and made sure it was well fixed. Glass guys I used hadnt done that style in 15 years, so try n find n old school installer who at least can pull how ot do it from the cobwebs, its not what i would call a normal/modern glue in style. The earlier one with seals is much easier.

Larry Jr of APE and I got my front and rear Super glass in with new seals in a couple hours. Used the crossed rope, a little pick to pull at the seal, some Vaseline, and two guys working, one in and one out. Went OK. Headliner was in place. Rubber just lies on the body lip, no glue.

Both front and rear, feed it in at the top first, not bottom.
