    This is very important. A "professional" glass guy will insist that this is incorrect, because he never saw another car like this, but 47-52 Studebaker windshields install from the inside, like Perry says.

    The shop manual just says to install the reveal molding after installing the windshield, but does not give any good suggestions on how to accomplish that feat. It's one of the few instances where the tech writers let us down some 65 years ago.

    If you search "tech tips, specs and data" off the main page, there you will find the instructions. I believe I found it under Bob Johnstones tips. It involves putting a heavy cord in the opening the reveal molding will go into. Only problem is it does not tell if you are supposed to do this before or after windshield installation. I will be attempting this installation in the next month myself on my '52.

    The stainless trim is installed after the window is installed. The front window installed from the inside of the car.

    Windshield Gasket

    My 1948 Land Cruiser has a chrome strip in the gasket of the one-piece windshield and the two-piece rear window. Do I insert that chrome strip into the gasket before I install the glass or after I install the glass?

    Thanks,

    Joe
