Default 33 chevy windshield mounting...

My 33 chevy looks like the windshield mounted from the inside originally. Should I mount it from the inside or make a 1/2" inside-radius lip and mount it from the outside?

Is it a safety issue in modern times to have the windshield mount from the inside? Things were much different back then. 60hp didn't push very hard.

Do you have the inside garnish molding? (It squeezes the windshield and gasket in place.)

I don't see a problem if you mount it like it was done originally...

My 33 mounts on the inside of the reveal. I had the glass man urethane it in.
Have them run a bead of urethane around the outside so it looks close to original. The garnish covers the inside so it looks original.

I totally forgot that you have basically the same car as I do, OldIron.

Did you need to get any rubber molding around the glass before urethaning it in?
