You are out of luck, those windshields are not available new, period. The only way to get some is from salvage of another 04, but as there are very few of those in the US (most of the ones made were in Europe and the Middle East), your chances are slim. The only way a new one can be made is after the fabrication of a new mold, which will cost thousands. Attached are some pictures of a Model 04, including the windshield marking. The interior picture might be of your Model 04. I believe the original manufacturer was somewhere in Scandinavia (Finland, maybe). It would be difficult, but perhaps some other truck, bus, or RV windshield could be adapted if it was close in size and shape. Another (wild) idea is to graft the front end of another Eagle model, but that would change the character of the bus quite a bit, and be difficult to do. If the cracks are not changing, and your state inspection requirements are not a problem, then you might be able to live with them.
