[DML] Windshield Cracked.

Hello everyone.
Do not I repeat Do not I repeat Do not glue the rear view mirror to 
your windshield.  Or you will get what I got.  A big ol' crack down 
the middle of your windshield.

I included a picture in the PHOTOS section titled Windshield Cracked.

January 2001 went to inspect VIN 02261 "1981 DeLorean" for sale and 
there was a big crack in the windshield.  Previous owner had a brand 
new/old stock DMC windshield to replace the one with a crack in it.  
Puchased VIN 02261 in February 2001 with the brand new/old stock DMC 
windshield just installed.  The previous owner had the DMC mirror 
glued to the newly installed windshield.

Jump ahead to the winter of 2002/2003 and a crack suddenly appeared 
on the interior sheet of glass (you can feel it with your 
fingernail) at the exact spot of the black patch.  This crack 
started at the black patch and went up the glass until it reached 
the top.  The exterior sheet of glass is as smooth as well?glass and 
no crack can be felt.

Jump ahead to the spring of 2003 and on the very first warm sunny 
day that same crack started a journey in the opposite direction 
beginning at the black patch and continued down the windshield until 
it reached the bottom.

Jump ahead to today Saturday, March 19, 2006 and I took a photo for 
all to see.
