You mean the steel frame or the stainless trim or botth?
Pistonfarmer; the windshield frame is spot welded to the cowl. The roof is welded to it. Years ago I had a crash part windshield frame that came with a convertible I purchased. I no longer have that part but it clearly identified to me that you should be able to remove a header from a sedan and it work on your car.
So what’s with the doubled up leaf sprigs in the rear ?
I’ve seen those extra leaf springs before. They are installed to help cushion the car from heavy objects that fall onto it from above. Looks like they sorta worked as the damage could’a been worse. So it was worth installing them.
