If you do hang it from a sling just be sure there is no way that it can slide out of one end and crash to the floor. :(

I always put mine where I never go. Such as under a bed (if it will fit) or maybe in a extra closet. Try to keep it where no one will bump into it. The attic (in the area you don't go to) is a great place for a long storage time. I have made the mistake of covering it up in the garage and ended up breaking it because to many people going by it. Good Luck

Best is to store it vertically. If you lay it on the flat, be sure to support it properly as glass will settle out of shape if the storage period is long enough.

I would also probably avoid the attic due to the intense heat that can build up. As a kid I can recall riding my bike by a '52 Chevy when the back window exploded from the heat. The old woman tried to blame us for it. It cracked into about a million little pieces but stayed put.

It may not get that hot or have the requisite pressure, but why take a chance?

Your probably right. A very hot attic could be a problem. I get back to suggesting storing it out of daily traffic. I have ruined to many things by leaving them in my garage covered. I currently have my rear wagon glass in a spare bedroom along with the side glass. Keep in mine I am single and don't have that second voice to, let's just say "correct me".

Indeed, Gary, why take a chance? You could be a dangerous man when hot! Great typo, LOL.

Gary,

Good catch! I am not so hot, but probably have a bit of pressure. Frank dropped by today for our Chapter Christmas party and I sent him off with some old meet notices and such that I had from the formative years of the Greater Virginia Chapter back in the mid to late '70's. He is trying to put togetether some history of the Chapter.

The '49 2R16A was delivered to David Barnett just over a week ago and he has already put it to use on his place. He even drove it into town to the local Autozone today.

Another consideration - it is not very difficult to crack a w/screen when removing it, especially if the w/screen rubber has gone a mite hard over the years.
If your screen is in excellent condition, give thought to cutting the rubber to remove the screen without mishap.

dave,

I know I don't need to caution you any more than you've already been, but I must say that I would worry as much as you do about breaking valuable pieces of your Studebaker. It's gotta be tough to find replacement ANYTHING for a Studebaker in the Ukraine!:(
