Re: [DMCForum] Window cracking problem, what gives?



I think you'll find all original DMC windscreens have the British Safety 
"Kite Mark". They were made in the UK probably by Pilkington who have 
been around for years.

Not every car has such a swept screen as the DeLorean. And what happens 
a) when you do need to change your screen (you'll need a new mittor) or 
b) when the mirror itself breaks (seen that too).

There seems to be some reluctance to trust a sticky pad. They last for 
years, just not 25 in the hot sun :-) PLus, if using JB Weld, how ydo 
you hold the thing in place while the glue's setting?
