What's the angle(rake) of the Windshield?


May 28, 2013
Anyone happen to know what angle the windshield of the Model 3 is? Especially nearer to the top?

I'm trying to design a replacement "mounts to the windshield" bracket to 3d-print for my radar detector where the bracket holds the detector in front of it's balance point, and so it doesn't stay level. Having a good estimate of the angle will help me sketch this out to keep the detector pretty close to level.

Using my electronic tape measure (with built in level), the rake of the windshield next to the rear view mirror assembly is 24 degrees. However, my car is currently backed in my driveway which has a 3.5 degree slope. So overall, I'd say the glass has a 20 degree angle.
