Default Flush Mount Glass Kits for Early Fastbacks, anyone?

Hello, My name is Robert Jackson and I own Classic Auto Glass Innovations. We currently have a Flush Mount Glass Kit for the first gen Camaro/Firebird, plus several other General Motors lines coming out in months to come.

I have been approached by a few Mustang guys that have shown interest in a Early Model Mustang Fastback kit. Our General Motors kits offer a no body mod installation, and installs in a matter of a few hours. It doesnt matter if you car is currently on the show circuit or you are still building, these can be used in any stage with no mods or paint work.

These kits are REAL LAMINATED GLASS (not lexan) the kit offers an intergrated antenna in the windshield, and tinted rear glass option. The Classic Auto Glass Innovations kits come with everything necessary for the install, although we do recommend a professional installer.

Like I said, I have had some request for the early Mustang, but figured there wouldnt be much demand. The Pro-touring market seems to be strong in the General Motors vehicles, while Ford and Mopar seem to be stock.. If there would be some interest in the Mustang Product lines, please dont hesitate to send me a message or give me a call anytime.

I dont have Mustang glasses at this time, but here is what the kits look like in the Camaro... I hope not to offend by posting Camaro Pics here...Ha ha

The Four Link Rear end with the Z-Bar got in the way of the stock muffler location. It kind of grew on me the more I got used to it.. That car has the Full TCI Subframe and rear suspension system, 2005 Fuel Injected LS6 and T56 6-Speed..

Most of the interest I recieved was from the Fastback owners, but if the interest there, I will develope for the Coupes. I guess what I am looking for is the response and interest. The development cost is high, so I would like to atleast have an idea of potential interest..

My General Motors line of products was picked up by Classic Industries. Our first line of product 1st Gen Camaro/Firebird is on the inside cover of their new Catalogs.. If there is interest in Ford owners, I will proceed with product for the Ford vehicles.. I would hate to leave anyone out, if the interest is there. So, please offer me some insight if you have any interest or would potentially be interested in other models.

Since you don't have to do any body mods, I am ABSOLUTELY interested! What kind of a price are we looking at?

Definatly interested. If it was available last year they would already be in my coupe. Im sure that i will need a windshield in the next six months. I can only get about 4-5 months without a crack due to the trucks on the freeways here.

If it is available i would surely get one. If a package price for both could be had that would also add incentive.

This car was an 18 Week build from start to winning my first Trophy for best of show. I rescued it from the Farm Pasture where it sat for about 20 years. It sat so long, we had to dig it out with shovels.

I am in the process of flush mounting my windows on my coupe and ran into a few snags. If there was a easy way for me to do it I would surely be interested. What kind of costs are you talking about?

The Retail price of the Complete kit with any tint option is 1999.00.. Again, no body mods, no paint work, no cutting, even the trim clip tabs remain in place. Keep in mind, if you dont have to do body mods, you wont have the inevitible cracking that appears when you fill in the channels to fill the body in. It installs in about 3 hours, and is reversible in the same time frame.

When and if the lines of product comes out, early interest will get the kits for 1500 dollars. I will also be looking for guinee pigs to test the product and give me feed back. The Guinee pig vehicles will get the product for free, and the vehicle will be used in our ad and catalog campaign.. I have 4 Vehicle at SEMA coming up this year, all are guinee pig vehicles. We are going to use regular guy build cars to market our products, and also give us feed back.

So, if the interest is here.. I will come to this forum looking for vehicle that I will send free product for immediate installation. And will also offer the members of this site the 500 dollar discount price.

Just looking for a head count and overall opinion of possible interest.. So, it is up to you guys if Classic Auto Glass Innovations moves forward with the Ford line of products..

I'm in. As soon as it's available (note my optimism here) let me know so I can order.

if you're looking for someone to be a guinea pig for the coupe's i would definitely be interested in testing it for you, I've wanted to do a flush mount windshield for quite some time now.

When we reach that stage, I will start a Guinee Pig Thread asking for submission and pics.. I have done this in the past, and it is a win/win for everyone. I got the Red Camaro in the Classic Industries Catalog, and the owner was tickled because he probably wouldnt have gotten in anywhere..LOL

So until then, lets see how this thread goes.. If the interest appears to be there, Classic Auto Glass Innovations will move forward.

I think it looks bad ***. I have always liked that look. I'd be interested but shipping to Alaska will be very spendy.

Is that your complete kit above? What did you do for trim around the inside?

You dont have to do anything to the inside, it isnt noticable. If you notice the grey foam rolls in the kit, those are used to keep a clean urethane barrier. You dont have to modify you flange, interior trim pieces, nothing.. Here are a couple of inside pics from the Camaro..

These Glass's are the prototype pics and do not have the Dot Mattrix pattern on the outer edge of the black out. So, the black out is actually a bit smaller on the production glasses. Please note the outer weatherstrip in these pics are barely over 3/8" wide, they look larger with the close up pics.

Hey Andrew...What area was the Car Show at? Just curious as to which car you had seen.. Only a handful of my customers have their cars ready, and alot more being finished in the months to come.. Just wondering if I know which car...

I work with these Flush Mount Glass Kits all day long, and I have to look at an original car to remind me the new kit isnt factory. All the new cars have moved this direction years ago, so it just seems natural when you see the kit installed in person.. Also clue me in on the Glass Mod you are talking about for the 64-68, and I can see what I can get done...
