Angry You'd think windshield replacement would be easy...

Nothing is ever easy with me.

The glass installer cracked the new glass while replacing the trim.

Good news out of this-- $0 deductable and I get PPG glass with the tint.

Yeah replacing glass is really tough. I watched a guy struggle with my G/F's old civic, it took him a long time to get it right.

Watch him and make sure he does not touch the glass with his bare hands.

Alot of installers do not do the install properly and it can mean your life. The windshield is a very important part of the overall 'safety cage' of the car and if they do not use the right kind of adhesive, or foul it with their hand oils or leave it exposed too long to oxygen it will not set correctly and then when you have an accident your windshield will just go flying off.

Yikes!

That would not be good, I remember my installer wearing gloves so that wasnt the problem. I just remember there being alot of leaks that were not there before. The problem has since then been fixed.
