Grabowski explained to Overbay that Neil Emory hammered the original windshield stanchions from a piece of 1/8-inch plate. "So the following Saturday when no one was around, I took a ball peen hammer and a block and drew out some patterns. It was almost like Neil Emory was above me. It was like 1,000 hammer blows and it just worked and worked, and they turned out just right. We didn't know how they mounted on the dash side, until the day we were getting ready to do that, when we got a magazine with a close-up photo of the corner where the stanchion wraps around. Sometimes it felt like everything was just supposed to work."
