Did have a windshield put in the 91 g20 Saturday. Pulled the tape yesterday it looks like a 10 year old kid installed it. Not real happy with the shop.

Too bad you’re not near here Astrocreep, there is a guy that is hands down the best glass guy. Super reasonable, does great work and just goes the extra mile. Really rare these days

I spent most of my working career in a PPG Industries glass factory that included windshield and architectural glass manufacturing. One time I was having a windshield put in my Blazer and asked the shop if I could inspect the windshield before it was installed, the first 5 he brought out all had defects, that to the average person who knows nothing about glass would probably not notice, defects such as scratches, stones in the window, lamination between the glass crinkled, even 1 didn't have enough bow to the curve. When we made architectural windows, if we found a defect, the motto was, "as long as you can't see the defect from 11 feet", so all defective windows got put in boxes that were going in the 3rd floor or higher in a skyscraper. Had a windshield put in my 76 Dodge a few years back by one of them mobile vans that come to the house, 2 guys installed it and did a terrible job. I ended up taking it to another shop and paying out of my pocket to have it reinstalled, the first company had glue all over the rubber stripping and a corner of the glass wasn't inside the stripping, after I seen the work the 2 guys did, I didn't even want to go back to that shop and ask them to try and redo the work. Another time I was having a windshield put in the van, it was a cold day and I suggested to the installer that he should put the van out in the sun to let the rubber strip and metal warm up. He didn't listen and had it almost in except for the curved center part near the roof, just as he said he was about finished, he stuck the glazing tool in and crack went the windshield.

Unfortunately, the buttons on the other panels were a different shade and he thought he was re ordering what he had but they were brighter and a more true brass. It turned out they look really awesome, but he’s going to replace the ones he already did so they all match. But now we have a bunch on hand when we do the seats, front doors and doghouse. He’s a really talented dude and can’t wait to do more.

Dude, those panels are legit.


You hear the thunder of stampeding rhinos, elephants and tacky tigers
This town ain't big enough for the both of us
And it ain't me who's gonna leave
