Custom Cut Glass and Chopped Windshields

We take great pride in the success we have had in our Custom Glass projects. Cutting down Laminated glass for chop top and custom car glass installations is a very difficult art form. Even with our many years of experience we still break an occasional new window, and cutting old glass is even more difficult. The average chop starts at $395 with just the top of the glass cut and re-shaped to original. Additional cuts or modifications can be extra. To get a more exact quote call us at 925-462-6459 and we can go over the details of your project. It is very important to discuss and understand the needs for glass modifications BEFORE you begin your chop!. Certain types of glass such as tempered doors and rear windows cannot be cut or modified at all, so don't just start cutting'.

This is Keith Kaucher's '54 Ford designed by Kaucher Kustoms in Santa Monica California, winner of the Top 10 award at the '06 Goodguys West Coast Nationals and a Rod & Custom feature car. This project required a water jet cut down of a late model truck windshield to fit perfectly in the curved, chopped roof. We installed it with the modified '67 Camaro mouldings for as you can see, a beautiful finish....chopped windshield

CHOPPED WINDSHIELDS
This project was to chop the windshield for this beautiful custom Buick. It was a 3 1/2" chop that required 5 cuts with a glass cutter and a steady hand!

Notice the 3\4" black border around edge. We use our special rubber moulding that locks onto the edge for a perfect fit.

Scratch Abrasion Resistant Polycarbonate
Using Polycarbonate in this street car proved to be very tough. It resistes scractches and unfortunatly it also resists paint and glue, so to pull this off we needed to sand very carefully the edges around our patterns and use aluminum rivets too secure our lexan to the pinchweld. 1/8" or 3/16" will work, and if your shape does not have to much of a radius you can use 1/4". After sanding we painted around the edges(on the lexan) to hide the pinceweld, marked our 1/8" holes that we drilled prior. Using our own rubber gasket material we placed it over all the surrounding rivets. After several hour of fit, re-fit, and re-fit again! we finished with what looks like real glass in a custom chopped car....
