One of the most frustrating challenges of restoring classic cars and trucks is finding the right custom glass replacement. Auto glass has changed in many ways since the days of retro vehicles. For one thing, there are very few flat windows, which was a popular style for cars and trucks from the middle of the 20th century. Team Acme offers custom auto glass cutting to help you restore your classic vehicle so that it becomes safe and roadworthy once again.
Flat glass can be difficult to replace because the specs on a classic car are far different from anything on the market today. Team Acme uses laminated auto glass for the job. Laminated auto glass is made out of two panels of flat glass that are sealed together using a polymer bond. After the binding, the glass is cut to the shape and size that will let it interface with the internal mechanics of your car door or frame. Get a quote from our website to learn more.
To us here at Team Acme, a beautiful classic car is like a piece of fine art that deserves the best possible preservation and treatment. We take pride in our work, which is why we have developed a strict process that lets us produce quality results time and time again.
Team Acme’s Custom Glass Replacement Process goes as follows…
Step 1: We take extreme care while removing the old glass. It can become extra brittle over the years due to chips and microfractures. We research and follow the manufacturer’s specifications as often as possible.
Step 2: After the old glass is removed, we utilize this as a template for the next piece of glass. This lets us recreate the exact size and shape of the old pane of glass.
Step 3: After careful measuring, we are able to cut a new piece of glass for your vehicle. We then carefully sand down the edges to make sure the fit is exact. In stationary windows, this helps with fit and insulation, and it helps you operate moving windows as well.
Step 4: We finish the sanding process, then follow the manufacturer’s instructions in order to perform a secure installation.
