Glass installed in So Cal??

Have a 67 camaro and need to get the windshield and back glass installed. Looking for a shop or someone who can come by the house and do it.

I live in Orange County CA but willing to go to LA/ San Diego if the shop can also do a dent repair and color match.

Any suggestions? Thanks!

Re: Glass installed in So Cal??

Santini Paint & Body in Westminster would be the place to go for body and paint. He is the master when it comes to blending paint for a perfect color match. Don't ask me how I know. Pete has been in the business of custom body and paint since the 70's. Probably a bit on the pricey side, but mine was an insurance job. I'm sure they can recommend a glass guy in the area that can help you out.

Does Safe-lite use decent glass or do you provide your own?

Re: Glass installed in So Cal??

Joe if you call a commercial shop, ask what finish on the mounting flanges they expect to install over. I went to two shops and my mounting flanges were primed. They wouldn't install my glass because it didn't meet their standards. I had my own glass, so if they furnish the glass it may make a difference.

I ended up going back to my restoration shop a ask for a referral. He recommended two individuals that came to my garage and done a excellent job. So a restoration shop may be a good referral of a glass installer.

Re: Glass installed in So Cal??

The shops i talked to here would not reinstall my original glass in their shops on their company clock. They would install anything new they got or i walked in with. They would install the originals at my place though so one of them did. Both cited their insurance and liability as the reason they wouldnt. Made sure i helped too. Something about the bonding agent between the glass degrading over time.

67RSSS......owned since 69. A basket case for most of it.

Not many good old glass manufacturer s any more. Pilkington camaro first gen glass is now made in Mexico, but in general still a good glass. PGW makes a decent back glass. I kinda agree with the delamination.

Thanks everyone! I’ve called a few local shops and no reply’s yet. I will get back on the phone the next few days. Mainly I’d like someone who can do anything needed, paint, studs for clips, etc. I’ll keep everyone posted on what I figure out.

Thanks for all the input and pictures!
