I need new windshield and rear glass molding for my fastback. I haven't heard much good or bad about the repo stuff. Should I stick to original or is there any real difference? I don't care anything about originality (obviously) - just about quality.

Thanks -

All of the replacement glass I've seen is fine and is a lot cheaper than NOS/used and repro Carlite. If you are ever going to show the car you would lose points for non Carlite glass

The rear moldings for 68s at least, surprisingly, aren't bad at all. I have no problem with them on my fastback. The repro front pieces are pure crap, however. Find NOS or good originals that can be buffed. You can indent the front moldings with your thumb very easily.

I have the glass - I need the molding. My rear glass was fine and I picked up a new front windshield (Ford - Carlite) for 100.00.

I have read that the rear FB moulding does not fit well. Might find used original for ~100 or NOS for $200-$250

Where'd you get the windshield glass for just $100 if I may ask?

I had a set of repros for my 65 fastback that simply did not fit well. Find a set of originals, if you can. Dickson

My neighbor has an auto glass business. The mustang windshields are readily available and his dealer cost was
~ 100.00.
