924 windsheild.

Is the 924 windshield the same as a 944 windshield (aside from the antenna)?

I can get one from a junkyard for like 30 bucks and i need one really bad.

It can work, but it's not a direct fit.

I've seen it done, the installer ran a bead about 1" thich of urethane around the frame and let it sit for a few days. Tnen cam back and installed the windshield.

The problem is the 924 windshield is about 1/8" shorter all around then the 944, so there's not much overhang on the A-pillars.

I didn't think that a 924 windshield could be removed in one piece. If they do get it out get a REALLY good installer to put it in. The one I saw put in never leaked, so it is possible.

The early 944 windsields and the early 924 windsields are the same. Replaced mine a few years back for well under $200.

I've been told by the installers that the only difference between the early 944 and later 944 windsields is the antenna. The later 944 uses a spacer to repossition the windsield flush with the body work.

So-cal is this spacer on the later ones replaceable? Could one be installed on an early car to flush mount the glass?

As far as I know -- yes. Think the dash might have changed when they installed airbags. This would only eliminate the lower spacer.

This is something I'm considering. Well, was considering till I got rear ended. Put the dampener on a lot of things I wanted to do to the 83. Besides the flush windsield I was going to install the smooth roof line gutters. Also the front fender group from the 86. Even bouthg a stubby antenna to mount on the roof to replace the fender mounted one.
