I have the Ford Pinto 71 P/S body and interior but no windshield. What can I use to substitute the windshield? Thanks to all

Try the clear plastic packaging that comes in blister packs.  Those packages that the product can be seen front and rear with a piece of paper in between that describes the product.

Most hobby and craft stores sell clear plastic sheet. 2'X2', enough for a dozen cars or more. Perfectly clear and can be found in scale thickness. Although honestly, you don't want to go that thin. After it's cut and mounted, coat with futureshine to add clarity and protect against yellowing.

My favorite color is clear. I am also ambidexterous, I can screw up equally well with either hand. I am 53 years old and been building for most of that time. :)
