Thumbs down somebody please shoot me in the head.

i think maybe i should sell all my tools.
i pulled the moulding of my camaros windshield and replaced every clip. (part of it flew off on the freeway the other day) instead of giving year one 100 for 1/3 i got all of it at a wrecker for 10-great. i put the moulding back on and it's all done but i notice it's over this plastic piece at the base of the glass rather than under it. i use my tool that worked so good removing two sets of moulding and remove the one side piece and as i pull up, the windshield cracks.

Ouch, that had to hurt. Back to the bone yard for a windsheild! Get it from the same car you got the molding <img src="graemlins/mwink.gif" border="0" alt="[mwink]" />

Don't feel to bad, I've done it too. Was using the tried and true method of guitar string to get out a rear window and as I move around I get to the last 18" and snag a chip that I couldn't see and I pull a little harder thinking the beading was just hard and dry in that spot and that window just got 1 nearly straight crack all the way up. D'OH! I've since learned to treat glass a bit more gentle while I'm working on or around it.

In the wrecking yard or junk cars, spray around the windshield with wd-40 or deisel to soften the seal, give it a few minutes, it'll cut easier.

Hollow point or regular?

I put 4 windshields in the Willys B4 I got one that took! Has a chrome frame around the edge that is held in with sheet metal screws. The glass is very sensitive to touching one of the screws or being tightened too much in one spot.
