Hi Guys,

I have been following DD's many issues with his Pantera but the one concerning the fitting of the windshield cought my eye.

The trim on my Deauville windshield is lifting in both top corners. Almost as much as 3/8 inch in the far edges. The rubber is a 4 piece rubber and is actually still very supple. Original? I don't know.

The vendors all list a single rubber as per original spec.

The trim is a 2 piece like some Panteras. The screen is original from Saint Gobain so the fitment shouldn't be an issue.

The trim is the same as a Pantera, with the j-hook so fitting should be the same I guess. glass, rubber and trim go in as one.

Replacement screen is available here in Holland for a reasonable sum.

Should I go for it and take the whole lot out and start afresh? Apart from breaking the screen, I don't see that I have much to loose. It can't get much worse.

What do you guys think? ruit1ruit2ruit3ruit4ruit5

een nieuw rubber van Cicognani kost je ongeveer €500,- incl BTW en versturen .

maar als je rubber nog soepel is kan je deze nog gebruiken . Het beste is om het raam eruit te halen, kijken of de sierlijst conform de ronding van de body is en dan het raam, rubber en lijst in één keer te monteren.

Het is heel moeilijk om de lijst in het rubber te drukken met het raam in de auto.



My 71 Pantera has the same issue, The trim looks very close to your car. Steve Wilkinson told me more than likely the guy before me used the wrong gasket. 71 Pantera windshield gaskets are one year only and cost 700 bucks. 72 and up are much cheaper but, they are slightly different, so I'm told. Maybe this could be the case for your car, who Knows.  I fixed mine very cheaply, I,m embarrassed to say how I did it cause I'm a cheap SOB.
