Yep... Parked in front of the bar I go to & someone decided to throw a brick threw the window And rifle thru my center counsel... Im thinking it was an ex or it was a hate crime... Either way it sucks... At least it was the window & not the tires... Also no insurance here so I get to pay out of pocket for this... & just as I get asked to be in a Mag...

I haven't heard if they looked at the vids yet... The bar is pretty slow at doing that..

I know that for a fact :toothless I could have went with china glass but I wanted to go with ford glass. From what the guy said ford glass is thicker fits the frame better and doesn't distort. Bottom line you get what you pay for.

Actually, they don't. What it comes down to is the place that manufactures the glass new...either here or in China. I was considering a new windshield for the Ranchero, and I can get one for about $180, plus the cleanup of the frame and install would put it at around $320, but I found out it's Chinese manufacture. A Carlite brand would be US-made, and follow the pattern exactly.

Im getting used from a junkyard... $65 & up Im finding it... then whatever the cost to install.. 1 thing I didnt learn from my dad was to do auto glass..

Hope to have it fixed by Wednesday & with in the next 24 hours I should know who did it...

I hope it was my ex & not a random hater( if you know what I mean)..

Im really not pissed at all about it.. Im more pissed that I cant drive any of my rigs because they really dont blend in...LOL
