You can find all sorts of classic vehicles roaming the streets of Las Vegas as well as some five-star hotel lobbies. Whether they’re decked out with graphic images, gold plating or a full glitter cover, every car is unique in its own way.
Some classic vehicle owners tend to modify their car’s appearance to fit a more contemporary scheme; many do so by updating the car’s vintage glass. Due to the fact that classic cars come in sizes, shapes, and thicknesses that differ from those of modern vehicles, a customized glass cut is necessary to change a vehicle’s appeal.
What Is Classic Vehicle Glass Cutting?
In order to adapt to the construction of a classic vehicle, the glass replacement process involves the use of laminated glass, which is made up of two flat glass pieces that are held together with a polymer blend. This glass is cut to a specific shape and size suitable to its specific application, which can include everything from antique car doors and flat windshields, among others.
Team Acme’s Processes
Team Acme realizes the importance of each vehicle’s particular needs, which is why we offer custom auto glass production processes for those who’d like to step out of the box when it comes to their vehicle’s design. Following the instructions listed by the vehicle’s manufacturer, we firstly remove the old window and we use it as a template.
Next, we outline the glass onto a new glass sheet and start cutting it down to the right size and shape. Then, using the right sanding techniques, we smooth out all the edges and finally install the new glass according to the manufacturer’s instruction.
Glass Cutting for Hot Rods and Chop Tops
Team Acme uses high quality flat and curved glass, which can be utilized for several types of applications. Our tailored glass applications can perfectly fit your hot rod. As far as chop tops go, we can cut down most glass to fit a vehicle’s desired look while making sure that the chop geometry and alignment are correct.
What Kind of Glass Can You Find at Team Acme?
We have different laminated glass colors including standard solex green, clear and smoked. When the size of the glass exceeds 12 inches, tempered glass can be found in the same colors. Tempered glass can only be applied on side and back windows.
Chop top applications don’t come with a warranty. The modification of the vehicle may cause leaks or fitment issues. Our custom windshield warranty is the same as our windshield replacement warranty.
Just as each vehicle requires a special kind of glass replacement due its size, shape, and age, each warranty differs based on such elements, along with factors like the vehicle’s condition and location in which the laminated glass will be installed. You may not transfer applicable warranties if the vehicle is sold.
