Re: Rear View Mirror

I wish that it were that simple, I have that tool, works great for installing certain rear view mirrors, but does not work on the ones that I am talking about. This one has to twist on and off like a vice, can be very difficult, lubricant helps some but there is no tool for this one. Thanks anyway I...

Re: Crack repair multiple failure

Something that I have experienced before with a crack that you cannot seem to stop, is to make sure that the crack is on the outside layer of glass. If it is on the inside layer, it will always keep jumping past your drill point.

Re: Crack on inside of glass

Never have been able to repair a crack on the inside layer of glass, and would not recommend trying. Everything is upside down, you do not want to drip resin on the dash of the car, acid in the resin will do considerable damage, also would have to cure from the inside because the UV laminate will no...

Re: Air bubbles around bullseye edges.

I know that this is not protocol but when I see that air is remaining on a vacuum cycle and I cannot get it out, I do not hesitate to cure under pressure, works every time.

Just a shout out to everyone, hope that all is doing well. I have for years enjoyed reading whatever was posted on this forum, but it just seems that it has slowed way down.

Re: moisture evaporator episode

I never work without the moisture evaporator, I have never in 11 years had a crack out because of using it. I would never be without it. Like Brent says, always warm the windshield with the defroster when the glass is cold only takes 2 or 3 minutes. :D

Rear View Mirror

Wow! Has anybody else had trouble re-installing the rear view mirror on the 2015-2017 Ford F-150? It is the most difficult thing for me. I have used a lubricant but still very difficult, easy to break the apparatus off of the glass. Does anybody have any tips on replacing these things?

Re: Pictures of Professional Window Replacement - Molding not flush

Wrong Molding, Wrong Windshield? Definitely WRONG INSTALLER! Wow I would shut down my shop the next day if I had that quality of work. I would definitely recommend a re-do.
