    I am in the process of restoring the dash and the rear window clips. I have the front windshield out and have notice two small stone chips and a light scratch from the wiper. Also the rear glass has a few scratches on it. Should I just put in new glass or reinstall the original glass back in? Are there concerns about factory glass numbers I should be aware of? I little insight would be helpful.
    Thanks

    Depends how serious you are about authenticity. There are date codes on the glass. If you want to be as numbers correct as possible, put original glass back in. If just having fun driving the doesn’t matter, do whatever you want.

    Personal call on this one. I used all my original glass but the windshield which was too far gone. ECS has date coded windshields but only tinted the last I checked.

    Same here front windshield was turning yellow between the two glasses. Have the original rear windshield. Some scratches but not bad. Have been looking a some product's that you can clean the glass with and get rid of the scratches. They sell a kit with different items for cleaning the glass. Think it would be good to put it back in. Has the mopar brand on it. Cleaning it is less than a new one. My thought need money for other thing's. Good luck :beep:

    My side glass windows in the car have chips in them. I am going to leave them in the car and use them. I have to buy a new front windshield. I can get it for $140 from the local parts store .

    my car had a new windshield in it when I bought it. Less than a week after I got it a passing truck threw a rock and put a small chip in it. Unless the ones in yours are bad.....I'd reuse'm.
