wind shield

Post by lawrencepk » Fri Aug 04, 2023 5:05 am

I'm looking for a Mighty Mite windshield. I'v been told a M38a1 windshield will work, is that correct. If so, does anyone have one for sale.

Before you go spending a lot of shipping on one, check a local junkyard for a CJ5 jeep. It's the civilian equivalent of the M38A1, and you might look it over.
I have an M38A1 sitting out back I could measure things if needed. I seem to recall having the old windshield from it as well but would hate to think about shipping that piece.

do you still have the frame and the rubber gasket? if yes, take them to a glass shop. making a pattern is easy, it's just flat laminated, i have done tons of them before i retired.
