Hi guys,

I suppose the topic was already raised before but I didn't find any.
The question is: as I suppse windshields and door windows are discontinued, is there a way to get some of those new?

THink about that.

If they're discontinued, how can you get them new?

OTOH, if they're discontinued, how am I getting new ones put in my Cougar? >:)>:)

I think it depends on where you are; Estonia might have more problems getting them than Northeast Louisiana in the USA, for instance.

I call Safelite, they come out and put one in for $200.

From what I understand, any manufacturer can make any window; they download a pattern, cut a shape, and put it in a machine that bends it just so.

The blanks are whatever stackup meets local requirements.

Front windshields are laminated, side and rear are "Safety glass" that explodes when broken.

Call who you call for local cars, and see what they can do; you'll never get one shipped in one piece.

Well it is obvious that a lot more windows were manufactured than cars and they were not thrown away after a while so they just have to be somewhere and most probably for sale

Grog & Durandma: thanks for the tip, gonna try to mail them !
