IT WOULD BE BACKWARDS THOUGH.

NOT EXACTLY TRUE. I HAVE REPLACED WINDSHIELDS FOR PEOPLE THAT HAVE HUD, AND COULD NOT AFFORD THE HUD GLASS. (why do i have the caps on?) in any case i installed the non hud glass in the hud cars and it worked fine. now i dont know if this is the case for all hud cars, but i do know on pontiacs, buicks, and cadillacs it works.

This is true it still works but the display is not as clear if it doesn't have the proper windshield installed. I have seen HUD systems added to C5 corvettes that did not originally have one and they do not look as good because of the windshield not being changed. There is a reason for the proper glass

It not a matter of being lazy, it’s the fact you never have to take your eyes off the road when checking your gauges if you track or road race for one. It is also nice just for driving on the street to keep up with radio stations and other information so you don’t have to look down at the console or dash. I have a C5 Corvette and it's a nice add to the car, once you own one with it you miss having it when you drive another car without HUD

There is a difference between a hud windshield and a non hud, however I am going to respectfully disagree with your statement that it is a "no go". I have personally swapped in a hud from a 1990 pontiac turbo grand prix into a 1988 grand prix se 5 speed which did not come with hud and it worked fine. It is a little dim during the day, but if you crank the brightness and don't hook up the auto dimming wire which dims it when the headlights are on, it works fine.

My friend lorenzo gpse3400 over on 60degreev6 has done the same thing as have 2 of my other friends. They work fine and I plan to do the same thing with my 2010 camaro.

I will let you know how it works once I can get a unit from GM and the wiring!

Ken

well there is a right way to do something and a wrong way thats why the auto glass industry is full of a bunch of hacks. ya you can still see it but it looks like crap and we dont do it send them to the next glass company that will and youll be lucky if they primer the pinchwell just the type of people I want working on my car.

thats cool!

and for the record a 1288 will work fine in a 1289 car... we've been doing it for years... im sure one day, one of us will have to do a job for a used car lot and they won't want to pay for a hud windshield so we'll have install a 1813 in it.. we will know soon enough

we must get different windshields here in missouri or if theres something we need to do let me know I would love to make another 300.00 per windshield. from what i can remember the image just wasnt very bright or clear did not look good at all to try and get away with. Thats what we tried it on was the 1288 for a 1289

whoa whoa whoa, i know the right way to do my job, and i am by far not a hack. if you read above i posted that the customers could not afford the hud glass so they asked if i could install the non hud glass. my efforts in this post were to prove that the non hud windshield will work with a hud car. simple as that.

chances are, the person who owns the Grand Prix, isn't worried about the brightness of the HUD.... id be suprised if it still works
