Re: [DML] Cracked Winshield in Western Maryland!

I worked for an Auto Glass Company for 8 years in Massachusetts, the 
Safelight that was in our area was known as a hack shop. Beware of 
kids installing your glass. Beware of workers with cigarette butts 
hanging out of their mouth and the crack of their ass showing. Hands 
should not be shaking as they run the cold knife. The old bead 
should be scraped cleaned. Primer should be applied to the frame for 
better adhesion. Urethane bead should be applied nice and even all 
the way around. Windshield should be laid in nice and easy. There 
should be no excessive oozing of the urethane on the inside of the 
car. Perhaps Rob Grady could list out instructions for removing the 
moldings properly and how thick of a bead should be applied. 1/4"

drivers side lower edge.  Most of the crack is in the shaded area 
and I choose not to replace it since it passes state inspection. Rod
