    Howdy all!

    Got me a Gozzard windshield frame, bc mine was too far gone. Transferring all the hardware this weekend and noticed that on the factory steel one you have spot welded arches for the hood hooks to latch on when you lay the windshield on the hood. Like to keep this option if I can.

    I know Mike has reinforces alot of the areas with metal, and there is 2 lumps where it should hook, but I don't know if he has metal reinforcing it. Don't wanna cut it open it it doesn't. If it doesn't I guess I'll have to skip that part.

    Thanks in advance! :cheers:

    think a magnet might give you enuf information as to where metal is/isn't?

    Hey Woody, that's defiantely a great thought, but I'm pretty sure he uses alunimun for all the support plates. Maybe I'll drill a small hole and see if I hit metal, that's easy enuff to fill ;)
