Andras,

My friend David documented the replacement of the windshield of his 182P. I installied mine with the same procedure. Take a look:

Windshield replacement 2 weeks 5 days ago #1371

Andras,
Welcome. Those high quality windshields are made by Great Lakes Aero Products (GLAP) and you can get a better deal ordering directly. Two months ago I replaced the original windshield of my 182Q with a gray solar control (photo below). The installation was done following the Cessna and GLAP recommended method, WITHOUT removing any metal piece of the airplane. Much faster and cleaner than the method used by many A&P, drilling out lots of rivets, installing rivnuts and bolts and retouching the paint. In both methods some trimming could be required, since each Cessna is unique (hand made). GLAP windshields are custom fabricated after being ordered, so expect several weeks, not two or three days as Knots2U shows in its website.

The GLAP website URL is:

Dear Friends,

I have to replace the windshield on my 182P.
I came across this one from Knots2u:

www.knots2u.net/windshield-cessna-models...felt-pad-gla2063-ii/

They have an SC (solar control) version as well, for an extra price, also in green tint.
Does anybody have experience with this windshield?
Any suggestions or ideas are highly appreciated.

Thank you so much and fly your best!
Andras
