[DML] Windshield Replacement Experience

Well all, let me start off by saying that there is one less DeLorean  
in the world with a windshield antenna.  In the middle of having a  
large rock chip repaired by a professional, the windshield cracked.   
While it was a shame losing a rare piece of glass like that, I must  
say that I am enjoying the amazing reception I get with my new power  
antenna in the back!  Now I know what I've been missing...

I'd just like to say how impressed I am with DMCH and their customer  
service.  I explained to DMCH that a local autoglass store in  
Cincinnati would be giving them a call to order the windshield, and  
sure enough DMCH worked with the glass company to get a windshield  
sent out and delivered 2 days later.  They also included the 'sticky  
pad' for the mirror.  DMCH kept me informed of the situation the  
whole time, sent me tracking numbers for when it would arrive, and  
even wanted me to check in with them to make sure the windshield made  
it to Ohio in one piece.  Now that's a company that really cares  
about satisfying their customers.

As for the quality of the glass, the glass place that did the  
installation didn't see anything wrong with the replacement  
windshield (as another individual on the DML had complained about).   
I really think that people are over-reacting about the delamination.   
Look on the DMChelp.com forums and see for yourself what an average  
NOS windshield looks like.  Like me, I have a hunch you would rather  
live with that instead of a crack down the middle of the whole  

As I was driving 1880 home today from the glass shop, I realized just  
how lucky we are that DMCH bought all of the remaining parts from  
KAPAC.  What if another vendor had bought them, someone who refused  
to sell to anyone who posts on the DML?  Or someone without the  
financing to reproduce the parts that are starting to become scarce?   
I would have been SOL on getting a replacement windshield.  Unlike  
most other collector cars, we are incredibly lucky to have such easy  
access to so many NOS parts.  So Steve, James, Warren and everyone  
else at DMCH, thanks for everything!

I'll see you DML readers in June!  If you haven't registered for the  
DCS, do so today!  www.deloreancarshow.com
