Windows and window tint

Post by rrich1 » March 6th, 2019, 7:46 pm

I am going to replace the side windows in my 31 AA as the passenger side is cracked and I don't believe it is safety glass. Researching windows they seem to be tinted green or gray, or bronze.

Anyone replaced their windows? Are the colors that pronounced? What color did you go with and are you happy with it? Being my truck is dark green and black I was thinking of getting green.

Should I replaced all of the glass or would doing the door glass be fine? Added pics for reference. I won't get the truck until next month.

The recommendation found in my investigation is that the non-windshield glass should be tempered glass (like modern day vehicles). I guess tinted glass would be more for a hot-rod type vehicle.
