Default New Windshield

Almost not worth posting, but why not. Had to get the windshield replaced for my NC inspection next month. It has been cracked for around 5 years now, but finally spread all the way across to the driver's side. So after a few phone calls yesterday, I made an appointment with GlassMasters. They came out to the shop today and put it in. $150 after taxes, disposal, etc. and now it's good as new. I don't carry full coverage insurance, so I had to pay it out of pocket. Also, talked to him about putting the tab I bought for the Explorer auto dim mirror on. Turns out the new windshield came with the right size already on it. So I guess my stock Ranger mirror wouldn't have fit.

I was trying to put this off until I was ready to paint, but I ran out of time. Anyways, here are the pics.

Nice! I need a new windshield badly... mine is cracked starting in the middle and going up about 6 inches then all the way to the passenger side.... plus it is pitted so bad that when there is direct sunlight on it even when it was just cleaned it is very difficult to see.

I pay like $2 a month for windsheild coverage on my insurance.. i should find out if they replace it for free

Looks nice and clear.

I need a new window I have a bunch of small chips all over it. 1 big chip they "filled" 2 years ago. It is right in the line of sight.

$150 doesnt seem too bad. I figured more. My windshield is cracked at the very top. Been that way since I got it, and it has yet to get worse, knock on wood.

two local places were right around $200. safelite was $250 + taxes, came down to 230 after taxes, then said they would match the local companies. said no thanks, called glassmasters and they were even cheaper. i was asked how i heard about them. told them i saw the 50% off ad in the yellow pages.

man insurance in ontario is a rip off... i pay an extra $2.50 a month to have 'windsheild coverage' so i called my ins. company today and asked if they replace my cracked window free since i pay extra for the coverage.... they said if it is a repair under $100 they do it free (so a chip only) otherwise i would have to pay my $1000 deductible... WTF would i pay $1000 deductible to replace a window that might only cost around $250

i pay $3250 a year for insurance (with a CLEAN record and full G license) and they wont even fix a damn windsheild!!! I dont have the money right now to get a new window so it will have to wait a little longer

Sweet... I also have a ton of chips on mine but I'm on my 3rd one already and I lost my hookup for an OEM one so I'm dragging my feet since I don't want aftermarket

awesome, I really need a new one, mine is aged a ton and I hate it. New windshields are a great 'mod' cause it makes the vehicle seem brand new
