Much of our glass comes with a choice of tint. The three colours available for automotive use are clear, green and grey. Not all glass will have this choice available and each listing will advise what choice you have. The tab above Glass Colour Selection gives more detail about the colour selection available.
Where you have a choice of colour, it is often useful to hold a sample of the tint up against the colour you are going to paint the car, or have already painted the car. Therefore we can provide a free 100mm x 100mm sample of glass in the tint of your choice to assist you.
Much of our glass comes with a choice of edge work. The three types of edge work available are detailed on the Edge work tab above.. Not all glass will have this choice available and each listing will advise what choice you have.
Classic Glass colour: selection available for this listing.
Clear Glass. Most early model cars only came with clear glass. Clear glass is best for those:
– whose vehicles came with clear glass and wish to maintain authenticity.
– wish to have a clean look. – wish to apply after market tint on their vehicle.
Green Tint glass.The same tint as supplied in most vehicles that came with air conditioning installed. This was very popular option for a large number of 50’s & 60’s vehicles and eventually became the standard for the majority of cars. Green glass is best for those:
– whose vehicles came with green glass and wish to maintain originality.
– wish to co-ordinate the colour of the car with the glass. – who like the very slight cooling that the green tint provides.
Smoked Grey Tint glass is very popular in hot rods etc.Smoked Grey Tint glass is best for those:
– wish to co-ordinate the colour of the car with the glass.
– who like the very slight cooling that the green tint provides, but also want to remove the risk of scratching that is commonly caused to aftermarket tint in older vehicles.
Please Note:The tinted glass does not have any UV blocking properties. The glass itself is tinted, it is not a stick on aftermarket tint.
For those of you requiring customflat glass, we now offer the choice of three types of polishing on our edge work.
Range of edgework offerred:
Highly polished Show Quality finish that can be seen on the left of the photo below. This glass is CNC cut and then CNC polished to a lustrous shine, that is second to none! This will really set your ride apart from the rest!
Others of you may still like the quality and finish that only a CNC can give, but would prefer that it’s closer to the way it left the factory, which is why we now offer the Factory satin Finished range. This finish can be seen on the right of the photo below. All of the glass is CNC cut and then CNC ground to give you that OEM look to your new glass.
Hand polished. This glass is the closest to how it left the factory. The glass will still be CNC cut for accurate fit, however the edges will be hand finished. This glass represents good value for money as it is offered at a lower price that our CNC finished sets.
