Lo-Can Windshields

Greetings all!
It's been a little over a year since I ordered 42 windshields from Lo-Can for
those that wanted them. To date, I've had no negative feedback regarding
quality, installation, etc. Was wondering if everyone was satisfied with their
purchase. Also, has anyone used Gordon's weather-strip with the white stripe?
How was the fit? Basically, I'm just curious how things went with your new
glass.

Bilgy, received my Amsoil order today. Front bearings go on this weekend.
On-line ordering couldn't have been any easier. Two days later, the order was
at my door. Thanks for sharing your knowledge on that product. It appears that
Amsoil is the best lubricating product a guy can feed his Amphi. Your also on
my parts list for door seals.

In general, my restoration is going well. It reminds me a lot like building my
home. Every nail that I sunk or piece of sheetrock I hung, I knew I was one
step closer to completion. Slowly, the pile of parts gets smaller and soon I
will have a beautiful, fjord green Amphicar that starts most of the time, steers
poorly, leaks a little (or a lot), has occasional electrical problems,
overheats, has trouble climbing steep hills, needs more preventative maintenance
than all other cars, gets stuck on hidden stumps in lakes and rocks in rivers
and once in a while, catches fire! I can't wait!

My glass fit perfectly and the install was flawless. Of course Hugh
came out with the white striped seals AFTER I had already installed
the old style. DOH! It is clear and as an added benefit, it keeps the
waves out of the front seat too! :) I stored my perfect original in
the box the new one came in. Great job Brian!!

Keep in mind if you haven't ordered Amsoil products, Bilgy has
arrainged not only a fair discount for us, but the sales help pay for
a great little virtual place to hang you keys called dubya dubya
dubya dot amphicar dot net.
See (http://www.amphicar.net/amsoil/index.html)
More thanks to you as well Bilgy!

When my Amphi has an "Amphi moment" I have an explanation that always
makes me and witnesses feel better - "I hear they do that" ;)

Brian,
Thanks again for ordering the windshields. I just
installed mine a few weeks back and it looks great,
fits great and all for the nice low price you
negotiated. From all 40 of us or so, we owe you a cold
one some time.

Hello B Crombie

I don,t write on the computer much, so nobody really knows me.
I would like to know how much a windshield cost for my 67 amphy or was that
a one time deal? My car was a real mess so it,s going to take a long time to
finish. I brought fiberglass quarters from Gord, Had a friend bend me up a
new floor, had the whole car sandblasted,and primed I'm doing all the work
myself. I do that stuff as a hobby. and i like to paint. it's going to be
black with lots of murals on it. I was going to paint it yellow but,I ran
into Dave the wave on the Hudson River And his amphy was yellow. So I
changed it to black. At lease i think it was Dave? He was from NJ? Got to go
THANKS PAUL From ALBANY
One day a running 67

Paul,
Yes, that group purchase was a one time deal. We bought those windshields
from Lo-Can glass located near Boston, Mass. We paid $275.00 each plus
delivery. I do know that they ordered a few extra for their inventory so
they might have one for you. Also, Gordon Imports out of California now has
them for I think $179.99. You may be able to get Lo-Can to match that price
otherwise they just might sit on them for a long, long time.
Gordon's: 714.523.3512
Lo-Can: 800.345.9595
Hope that helps!
