Windshield

Does anyone know what years the windshield will cross with. I was looking at, and have not had a chance to measure yet, but it looks like the 84 B2000 windshield is the same as the 74 REPU, if that is so then any year from 74-84 courier or mazda will interchange. Can anyone confirm or dispute my thoughts. I did buy one of the new gaskets from the guy with all of the courier parts on Ebay.

Windshields

All I know is around the bottom corners of my windshield, the internal lamination is bubbling up and through... It kinda looks like worms or something have burrowed in the glass... very ugly.

I've tried a search on the web for windshields... but I may just call up a local shop and see what they can do.

I do think that the glass is the same. The gasket goes foward a few years from the cease in production of the REPU.

windshield cross's

The following piston Mazda's cross windshields with the repu: B1600 72-76, B1800 76-78, B2000 79-84, and the B2200 82-84. Its possible the years could extend past 84 because my cross ref book only goes up to 1984.

Hey Jeff, hwere do you get one of those nifty cross ref books? That sure is handy. Does that cross ref all the parts? like chassis, brakes, suspension, other bodily functions? IF so, I gotta have it...where do I go!!!
...Not that I'm curious or anything like that.

Books

Yea Jeff, where'd ya get it. I'd like to find one too since I have an 84 B2000 and I know a lot of the parts interchange, but it'd be real nice to know exactly which ones do.

Let us know.

The book is printed by Hollander Company and is used by junk yards to cross parts. Its called the Foreign Interchange Edition. I heard that it is no longer available in book form, but now is on software and is very expensive. A friend found it for me at a car show and at first glance didn't think I would use it much, but its a valuable item in my book collection. I was also told that the later Hollander Interchange info only crosses if it is an exact replacement and doesn't require any modification to get the part installed. If you know someone in the junkyard biz, maybe he would share the info you need.

Hollander

Jeff, whats the edition and date on that volume? example: 12th edition (July 1989) This is one from Amazon.
with a title of, Hollander Foreign Car Interchange

Or does yours just have the trucks in it.

Thanks for the help..

jfaplanet, mine says 8th Foreign Interchange Edition (1984). The book is about 3 inch's thick and covers all foreign vehicles including stuff like the Ford Courier and the Chevy LUV. It also has all foreign cars. Some of the stuff goes back to the 50's like the Volkswagen Beetle. The only thing with the one that your looking at is can you return it if things are missing. The books are set up to put in new pages as they become available, but I can see that the book could be incomplete and Amazon wouldn't know it.

Mazilla, the book again if complete and nothing is missing has everything in you asked about and more. Funny thing about my book, I have no crosses at all with the REPU to the Ford Courier. Maybe that one jfaplanet is looking would be upgraded by 89 to include that stuff.

OK guys, now you got me thinkin...I'm going to go searching...I think there was an old book store in the next county that dealt with old car books. I got some mini cooper manuals from them once. Maybe they will source this book of knowledge. if they can get it, i'm sure that you folks would be interested so I will see how many they can get...Now if I can just ditch work real quick and go searchin....got some junk yard scroungin to do as well...man, I'm jones'n for that mud pit that I have found so many goodies in...sure would be nice to know what to snag when I get there...

Thanks for the info folks...

found the hollander site but I wonder if the newer ones have all the older stuff in it as well? I guess I'd better give them a call...

windshield seal

I just purchased a new dark tint windshield and a new seal.The glass looks good but I am not happy with the glass seal. The installer says I need the center chrome plastic trim pieces to fill out the seal. I'll recommend the glass shop when I get the seal to fit properly.
Anybody know where I can find that chrome plastic windshield trim? Thanks in advance,
Tim

Windshield seal trim

Thanks,

Mine is indeed only plastic, metal trim sounds like another upgrade on the later years. I'm dreaming too, of an RX8.

trim pieces & seal

i put a windshield in aprox 4 month's ago with a factory new rubber seal. the trim pieces made no difference on how the seal fit. it could be the seal it's self, or not properly instaled. i may have a set of used trim for sale but it's not perfect

windshield

Thanks rtrypwr,
I just confirmed this last weekend I have additional leaks compounded by parking uphill. The water that leaks thru the hood gap leaks in from the tray with the vin. plate and fuse box into the cab.I'll park downhill now and trace out that leak first as the w/s installation is guaranteed.
My concern of the W/S and or seal is that the seal dosen't cover as much of the body as the old seal did.

w-rubber@ trim

mine didn't cover as much as the old one either. my buddy thats done many a rotary wndshield said it was normal, and as you drive it. the windshield and seal will seat itself where it likes to be. the curved parts of the trim pieces are plastic , the clips that hide the seams are metal

Replaced

I just got my front windshield replaced, wow what a difference! The old one had the lamination seperation on the bottom corners, numerous 1/2 cracks, and a ton of pock marks.

The surround that came off the truck was all rubber, and the one that is in there now is all rubber, just a ton darker, and not cracking! :)

Next up felt for the side windows.... (new thread time)
