I will be purchasing a couple NEW windshields for my 944T and 745T.

Did the installer have the correct clips, or did you purchase and provide them?

Is there a "new version" which excludes metal fascia all around the glass? Or did they use your original pieces in the corners? I'd like to see a pic of what your corners look like after install of the new glass.

Also following your progress!

New clips is included with the new windshield.

They used the old frames (or what the are called?) to the new shield then it is exactly as the old one.

I can take a couples of piktures for you.

Your installer did a better job than mine did. The clips are all coming apart on mine and the frames are rusting.

There are a lot of crappy windshield installers. I don't believe you can source the clips anymore. I got lucky on a real warm day and was able to extract all the clips from a car in the junkyard. If you are careful and the clips aren't brittle, you can extract clips without too much trouble. When you take your car to have a new windshield installed, explain to the installer that the clips need to be installed first and that they just can't glob whatever adhesive that they use. The adhesive must be applied uniformly so the trim pieces can slide on to the clips without being obstructed. I will be doing this soon.

A little grease always helps in a lot of situations.

You have one the THE nicest 945Ts on this forum.... don't stop the thread! We appreciate your documentation and workmanship.

I'm preparing for the pair of "windscreens" and need to find the clips required. As others have said, I'm certain the typical USA installer will just "goop" the adhesive and throw the shield into position. Your pics appear to show a GERMANY windshield, whereas the stock here is likely all Chinese. I'm looking forward to clear glass again..... when I drive my 92 sedan and wagon, I can see when the sun shines directly into the glass.

Did I miss the driver's point of view of the gauges you added to the corner of the dash?

That looks very good. I'd prefer this over the pillar mount. What cups did you use?
