rust around windshield

Asked by May 17, 2009 at 02:17 PM about the 1965 Pontiac GTO

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 65 GTO project that has rust at the bottom of the windshield area that also has spread to the front edge of the dashboard. Could anyone give me some information on how to go about getting replacement parts for this area and also how to repair it?
Thank you

Check Ames Performance parts (www.amesperf.com tel. 1-800-421-2637), "Lower Windshield Repair Panel #G134. The same parts fits all 64-67 Lemans, GTO. You will probably also need the trim clips that rust away. Ames has all the pieces you will need, including the stainless trim. If you want to try to restore what you got, POR15 is a great product. Works like paint, will solidify the rust that you have, converts it back into metal that you can drill, grind, fill, and repaint. But I recommend replacing the part. Good luck, and post some pictures!

a mig welder you can get for around $150.00 from harbor frieght. there are a few places you can get parts from like amesperformance.com , yearone.com, performanceyears.com & a few others ,but they are not cheap . when it comes to body parts its cheaper to buy used. you find good parts from hemmings.com, specialinterest.com, classicalpontiac.com there are alot more .is this an original gto or clone , what engine is in it? 4 spd or auto?
