It is a flat glass

P.G Glass can normally cut for you, or get hold of PG Glass CT that also do it and will send it up to you.

Are you sure, I seam to think my oval was flat as well as the 59,

Hey I may be wrong but the 59 was made by PG Glass in Cape Town.

Also there is a glass guy in East London that did custom glass, made for the Eagles for the late Johan Eagle.

Will try to get their name.

Definitely not flat, have just been through this exercise.
If it's too low, you're too old :twisted:
