$500 shipped is a great price.
I got a windshield for a '66 Dodge for under $500 shipped two years ago. They gave me a clear instead of the tinted I ordered and tried to get another $50 out of ne for what I paid for. I should have done that, because now I have a clear windshield I don't want to install.$500 shipped is a great price.
When I called around a year ago, $1500 installed was what I was being told.
I considered buying a handful thru Summit to get the per-piece shipping price down (2 for me, and 2-3 to sell locally), but then I got a screaming deal for one for $109 thru Jegs.
When it arrived I was amazed at how poorly it was packaged, and when the driver and I removed it from the box, it was cracked, of course.
As Jeg's and Summit are surely getting from the same source, I don't cotton the idea of making an 8-hour drive to the closest Summit and find most or all of them broken when I inspect them at their will-call.
I also contacted a business in my area of San Bernardino County here in Southern California that told me that they would be receiving a shipment of the glass I/we are looking for in about 6 weeks. They said the glass they ordered comes from Indonesia and shipped by boat. They also claim it is top quality and available in various forms such as tinted with a blue top shade that is consistent with the glass I received from Finland. So hopefully this will all come through and there will indeed be a source. When it comes in I will go and take a look at it and report back. The person I talked with said I am the third person this year that contacted them about this specific glass and after the first two contacts they placed the order. So we will see.........................
The company I am dealing with mostly supplies classic auto glass for the 55-56 Chevrolet restoration guys but will also supply glass for other models as well. So I am hopeful of their quality.
I got a windshield for my Monaco from them. They switched it to a non tint windshield, after taking my payment for a tinted windshield, then tried to get another $50 from me for what I already paid for. I should have, because I don't want a clear windshield. I hopemi have better luck this time around.
