type 44 windshield interchangeability
Here's another little question for the group.
My '91 200q has a cracked windshield - a little distracting driving around
in the sun.
I happen to know of a totally trashed 85 5kt parts car with, surprisingly
enough, a nicely intact windshield.
Yes, the VIN window is in a different place - newer one is close to
A-pillar, older one is more under driver's wiper. Let's say I scrape the
paint (that's all it is, right?) on the inside of the older windshield so
my VIN would be visible. And the newer windshield has an antenna, which I
am not currently using anyway thanks to a successful Bose-ectomy.
The question(s): do professional glass installers have any better luck
removing glued-in windshields than the low rates reported here for DIYer's?
Are these glass pieces as dimensionally similar as they seem - would the
old one fit in the new car? Transport isn't much of a problem as only about
30 feet currently separate the two vehicles. Parts car is in the hands of a
private individual, think I can get a pretty good deal...
Do this, don't dare do this? Any opinions?
TIA yet again,
1991 200 quattro, 105k, needs a wash and window tint as well, getting to
the door wires *real* soon now
1988 GTI 16v, 198k, maybe a little too noisy to drive to Vail
