WINDSCHIELD WOOD was created by A.S. KOLLER
Hi,
I need to make the piece of wood that goes between the V in the windshield on an 812 Beverley.

My question is, does the wire-on go across the windshield in one piece with the wood routed out to go over it or is the wire-on split and butt against the edge of the center piece of wood?

Thanks
Steve Koller

Steve attached is a copy of the original Trim Stick Factory drawing. The wired on strip can be installed in one piece.
Note that the location of the rear view mirror was set higher in the Hupmobile version. The Cord height was 2 29/32", you could round this off to 2 7/8"

Thanks Terry, the drawing is very helpful and not what I expected.
I thought that the back of the stick would have a V-cut to match the windshield post. The 1/2" radius cut is a lot easier to make but it does leave a gap that I don't care for on both edges.
The 1/2" radius cove on the top edge appears to be upside down or am I
mistaking?
In order to install the wire-on in one piece I would have to modify the bridge piece of wood in that area which I am not sure I should do. I will e-mail you a picture of it as I do not know how to attach pictures in this forum.
Thanks Steve

Can I ask a dumb question? What is a "wire on" ?

It is the edge strip material that fits along the bottom of the headlining above the windshields.
It has a U shaped woven wire inside it so that it can be opened up for fixing in place with tacks etc then closed back up. It is also used around the door openings. It is also called wind lacing.
