    Anyone know if the Non-A/C cars came with tinted (Sun-X) glass or clear ? It is not denoted on my Marti report or anywhere else I can locate. Any idea on how to verify or were they all clear glass with the exception of AC cars ?

    Also, any good contacts on replacement glass or anyone that is able to re-etch the Carlite logo or date code info, mine seems to have faded considerably. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Jim

    It depends on which piece of glass you are talking about? All rear fastback glass is tinted Sun-X. I would think the tinted glass would be on the Marti report if you mean side glass.

    Thanks for the quick response. I posed this same question over on the Concours Mustang Forum and Bob Gaines responded that Non-A/C cars had clear glass but did not specify if the rear was Sun-X. I responded to Bob asking if the rear glass is Sun-X and he has yet to reply. I have read responses that claim both clear and Sun-X and I'd prefer to solve the puzzle before I install mine.

    I have not seen clear backglass on a fastback. I think its tinted, because of the angle of the glass.

    Try PS Auto Glass in Janrsville, WI.
