Default Best source for glass?

I need a left Quarter panel window for my 40 Deluxe Sedan. Where is best to get this? What is in there is still the factory glass, but some has cracked and fallen off the outer part of the window.

Any GOOD auto glass emporium should be able to use that flat glass panel as a pattern for a new piece. Believe it or not, many of these places, especially if they've been around for years, still have a catalog of patterns. Call around! DD

I had our local glass guy replace my left rear quarter window. He did it very quickly and I thought $50 for cutting AND installing it was very cheap.

Absolutely a local glass house, I had both side's of my windshield and one door glass cut by a local shop. If you want them to look stock purchase a "Bug" stencil kit from Third Generation Ford Parts.

I got glass pieces from a junk yard and cut my own. Used the old pieces as patterns. Not difficult to do.
