During our last trip to Hot Rods by Dean (HRBD) in Phoenix, the progress on Project Shop Truck took a couple more steps forward with the installation of the windshield and rear glass and rubber, and a windshield wiper kit.

Project Shop Truck, as you know, is STREET RODDER's '47 Chevy project pickup, with work being done at HRBD and progress being recorded right here on these pages. The buildup is unusual in that our nostalgia-style '47 Chevy pickup is being built entirely from readily available aftermarket components. Many of the parts, including the wiper kit, came from Chevs of the 40's.

Cutting and installing glass is a specialized skill, which is why rod shops bring in skilled specialists to do it. HRBD relies on Bell Glass Company, located in Phoenix, for many of their project vehicles.

Rich Williams, from Bell Glass, along with his brother and father, has been doing this for 30 years, and installed the two-piece windshield and rear glass on our '47 Chevy, using glass from JR Distributor International and rubber from SoffSeal.
