While we are discussing windshields,  I need to locate some  "T" bolts.  These were used to fasten my windshield  frame to the deck., and then nutted from the underside. They kinda look like toilet bolts. Any ideas!!

I did a google search, it appears they are hard to find, (but you probably already know that :) ).

 

They pop up occasionally on EBay, but it looks like most make their own by trimming the head of a carriage bolt or even the toilet bolts you mentioned.

 

Windshields can be restored with a combination of alot of elbow grease, (polishing) and a product called Plastix.

 

If you still want new ones, drop me a line and I'll tell you what I have.
