[DML] Re: Cracked windshield...

Sometimes the crack can be repaired. You have to get in touch with a
shop that is experienced at that kind of repair and get an estimate on
the possability. If it cannot be repaired the windshields are
available from your favorite Delorean vendors. I would get shipping
insurance. No installer will give you any kind of guarantees if you
supply the glass. You can save some money (not much) by removing the
old windscreen and trim yourself. A good time to clean and paint
everything including the plate underneath which is probably very
rusty. Clean it up best you can and cover it with POR-15. Replace all
the ground straps on the trim. The installer should use primer on the
fiberglass AND the windscreen before applying the sealer. Make sure
you use the adhesive pad to install the rear view mirror. Sometimes
the glass cracks because the wire brackets on the bottom that keep the
glass from sliding down chip the glass. Make sure they are bent up
high enough so the glass can't ride over them. Windshields with the
built-in antennaes are no longer available. It is worth about $100 to
have the new one installed and about $50 if it can be repaired. Buy
new wiper blades. Inquire with your insurance company to see if you
have any glass coverage and what the deductable is. You might be
surprised to find they may cover some or all of this. As of now there
does not appear to be any confirmed cross-over for the windshield.
