Butch,

By no means was I suggesting you go to the extreme amount of work to replace the rear glass to get the tint you're looking for...As I said in my post.."As a point of color reference...".

BTW is this for the hardtop on the '62 I inspected for you here in San Antonio? How are you liking the car? Post some pictures for us!

NO, not on that car! But that’s about the only color it would look good on.

You should see how nice it looks on a Goldwood Yellow C2 coupe, or a Glen Green '65.....I have Soft Ray on my Blue Charcoal '65 GTO and it totally classes the car up, IMO.

Yes, I understood that Paul and I would want all the hardtop glass tinted, but it might not be as easy as I thought. I think the green looks great on certain colors and outstanding on your car.

Yep, one and the same hardtop Paul and I love the car. Some gaskets, seals and fluids to change, plus screws, bolts and nuts to tighten up, but that was to be expected from a hangar queen. It puts a smile on my face every day when I go out in the garage.

Definitely - my long gone Glen Green '65 was gorgeous with the factory tint. Sorry it had to go, but I had no garage for it. Sad day.
