Re: [DML] Windshield Cracked.

To Ryan and the List,

Wow didn't know my post about a cracked windshield was so popular.

I didn't glue or install or replace the windshield or mirror.  I 
inspected the July '81 DeLorean in January 2001 and found it had a 
cracked windshield.
The previous owner said he would have installed a brand spanking new 
DMC windshield before I pick up the 'D' in February.  The new DMC 
windshield got installed by somebody and somebody glued the mirror 
to the windshield.  Don't know who.
Aprox. two years after purchasing the 'D' is when the crack 
appeared.  It took several months for the crack to run all the way 
down the windshield.
The crack is on the interior sheet of glass and what I was told from 
auto windshield stores is there is no way to guarantee a permanent 
fix on a crack that big on the inside sheet of glass since they 
would have to squirt glue upside down into the crack.
Someday I will replace it.  Esp. since it's embarrasing to drive 
around in a 'D' with a big ol' crack in the windshield.
