New Windshied: Green or Smoke tint?
Author Last Post

I ordered a one piece clear windshield from them in 2006. It has been great.

Has anybody ordered windows from Cee Bailey? if so, how did you like them? 

 

I bought an entire "kit" from them, all windows and they are great.

Ok, good, I wanted smoke and was in hopes there was no hidden reason I had not thought about.
Hilltop that pic looks great.
So smoke is what it will be.

Put a smoke tint in a couple of years ago. Really like it, looks good and excellent vis compared to green.
 
Light smoke color looks "rich" and goes well with any color, can't see the tint from inside the plane. Green looks dated.
 
 
Light Smoke vs. Green
 
 
Last week I ordered a one piece windshield, 2" bubble windows, and new rear glass in smoke tint from Great Lakes Aero Products.  It's for my 1956 180 and I can let you know how I like it in a few weeks. 

In my opinion, smoke is definitely the way to go. Far superior to green and clear.

The other is all clear.
I am leaning toward smoke but would like other members thoughts on the tint choice.
