    Please contact them and see if they can come up with anything? Also try to find out a price.

    that part number you guys are using is incorrect, that is for the convertible 4897447AA, the coupe is 4897573AA, if you search directly for the correct part number it comes up. It says sitting in warehouse should ship today.

    You are correct, I did post up the correct part numbers earlier in the thread, but the email posted back to me from Rock Auto lists the RT/10 Glass being out of stock, (for the record, that's an admin error by RockAuto).

    It was at least 3 weeks before they contacted me

    I just talked to them and they ask for some pictures and additional information. The person I spoke to said they should be able to make them. Not sure of price yet. I have sent an email and asked them to provide a cost. Fortunately I don't need a windshield but maybe depending on price would pick up a spare. Also, they are in Florida and would need a template car / windshield. I am a long ways, if it is something they could do and are interested in, maybe a Florida member could loan them their car. Will keep you posted when I hear back.

    How much did they charge you? I searched part 4897573AA for the coupe and it came to $1500CAD....not even sure if they have it, but that is steep

    yeah that is correct, it was 1350 with shipping

  12. #162
    Just a heads up, the price dropped on rockauto for the windshield to 750. You have to search via the part number 4897573AA

    The shop in Florida that I reached out to can make them. Here is his response to me. Seems very reasonable to me considering he has to make the mold.

    If anyone or a vendor is interested in working with him locally. Here is his email response to me.

    "Hello Ed,

    We are able to manufacture this windshield for you, the cost to have the mold made for the first unit is $1,500 and the glass is $750 with a 3-5 week lead time, crating is $225 and freight is on buyer (estimated at $200). We will need either a physical template, duplicate piece or exact drawings, you are welcome to post in the thread about the price and lead time of the panel, if you are ordering a quantity of panels it will be priced accordingly.

    Thank you,

    In theory I got the last one. Here is crossing my fingers that 4897573AA is for the 98GTS. Some quick internet searches showed it was. $1375CAD shipped to Canada. Plus installation

    oh dang, they dont show it anymore.....welp I guess the custom made ones are the last choice

    It sucks but not end of the world. I'd prefer glass but am willing to do Lexan which are readily available from racingshields at least. Not preferred but I can go with it

    I don't think Lexan is street legal.

    Correct...neither are a lot of things on some of our cars. If it means the firefighters cant smash out the windshield and are also unable to get through either side window or rear window...well then it is my time to go.

    Well, I went ahead an ordered one right away after jasond29 mentioned it. I did receive it. Very well packed. Looks to be an aftermarket brand but looks good. 20200110_140914_resized.jpg20200110_140922_resized.jpg

    Yes. It came with what feels like a rubber gasket.
