Hi

I'm putting a CJ7 together. My spare time project. I need a windshield frame, because the one I have is too rusted. I acquired a windshield and frame thinking, no rust!, yay. Then I took the windshield out of the frame. The seal track was all rusted under the seal on the bottom. I found a brand new OEM windshield frame at a Jeep dealership for almost $400, which I'll get if I can't find something comparable. I guess my question to everyone, is what brand of windshield frame is the closest to OEM. This is a CJ7, no brace on the top of the windshield and with the thin metal of aftermarket, I'm scared it won't hold up. I've also read reviews that in a lot of cases, the bolt holes don't line up, etc.

Thanks,
Jim
