Here is a few cool shots from when the Fargo was working on the farm (you may have to Zoom in). The little girl in the bonnet is my Mom and the shirtless boy is my uncle. My uncle was particularly fond of the Fargo and I have been updating my family on its progress.

My uncle came to see the truck and it brought him to tears seeing it again.

What a wonderful job.

I must admit I have given up on windscreen repairs in old trucks and resorted to rust converter and "molding" the rotten replacement sections in fibreglass or stainless bog. Looks OK and works but nothing like your professional workmanship.

Thanks Lang, I don't think I would ever want to tackle it again for sure. It was another one of those 'just to see if I can' sort of things. I wanted it to last so I do not need to do it again.

I was motivated by a cool water slide decal I found and wanted it to look nice when its installed.
I won't show the decal until I post the installed windshield. It is VERY Canadian haha.

I don't know many people who get excited about cutting out rust and when you see what you have in front of you it can be off putting. Once started though the plan you have set out sems to come together and work and before long you can the light at the end of the tunnel.
What a lovely and professional job you have made of the repair and thanks for sharing the personal side to the story behind the Fargo.

Hey Guys, I finished the windshield frame and installed some glass.
My friend owns a glass shop and found a really nice gasket that goes
in between the frame and the glass and gives a really nice finished look.

Im quite happy with the results.

Hey Some guy, you cheated us out of your photos. You need to have another go, select attachments from under the text box, then go to add files. Once you have chosen them you need to click inset for each one or if the option is insert all, go for that one.

We are all waiting..... because as you know, if ya ain't got a photo it never happened.

Dang!
I thought I did it this time Sarge :-X. I did all that you explained and the photos show in my post.
I even logged out and checked the post and the photos show up then as well???

Why can I see the pics on the post and you cannot? Is anybody else out there unable to see the photos?

Think I'm 0 for 10 on posting without help of some sort. I have to get better at this because now I have the windshield
installed in the truck and I want to brag about how awesome it looks haha.

Hi,

your photos are stored on your Google account and only visible to you because you are still logged into your Google account.

You either need to make your photos publicly viewable from Google or upload the images as attachments and store a copy of them on this website.
