V-bent Windshield

Guys, need some information. I had a glass guy install a V-bent windshield into a 1938 Chevy. Windshield and rubber molding came from Chevys of the 40's. According to the glass guy, I wasn't there for the whole install, he had to take it back to his shop a couple times to grind/sand the edge a bit to get it to fit. He gets it in and then OVER NIGHT, the glass cracks right in the center from bottom to top. Have any of you had any experience installing this type of windshield and do you know of any tricks or tips before I have it tried again?

probably just a bad piece and the angle's off just keep trying Im sure they guarantee their work when they furnish the materials...some of that aftermarket glass is real crap.thats why I always have a glass guy come to the shop...I got one installed with 5 golfball size dimples in it that nobody noticed he came back and replaced it at no extra cost...the same company broke two windshields before they got a good one for a van...
