Windshield and door glass are generally considered to be very durable, and replacement is usually performed in case of damages like cracks and holes. But actually the windshield of a vehicle is constantly deteriorating. As you drive small particles of windblown sand and dirt make tiny pits in the glass, and after a period of years, this damage can significantly reduce visibility and endanger your and your passengers' safety, especially when the sunlight or oncoming headlights strike the glass at the right angle.

Side door glass can also become scratched or chipped from sand and dirt. Particles can be trapped in the door seals and slowly abrade the glass over time as the window is raised and lowered. There are repair methods that will help remove minor scratches, but for deep pits and scuffs as well as cracks and holes, replacement is the safest and most efficient option. Whether you are restoring a classic auto or repairing a daily driver vehicle, we have the right products that will meet all your glass needs.

Most drivers don’t realize it, but the windshield is safety feature as well as a structural component that adds rigidity to your vehicle's cabin. All windshields are constructed from laminated safety glass, which has a layer of polyvinyl butyral sandwiched between two layers of tempered glass. This type of glass stays together even when broken preventing injury that could be caused by large jagged shards breaking off. Minor stone chips and cracks don't pose a significant hazard, but the major impact damage and cracks could compromise windshield integrity. It’s obvious then, that windshield repair should not be taken lightly and you should pay special attention to the process of repair and replacement.

Even without major damage, a windshield can become unusable after many years of pits and scratches caused by dust, sand, and windblown debris, and this especially applies to older classic cars. You wouldn’t bolt a set of rusty bumpers onto a freshly painted and perfectly restored classic car, so why re-install worn out glass? No matter how great the vehicle looks or functions mechanically, the view out of such a windshield will make it feel like you’re driving an old beater. If you want your vehicle look perfect to the smallest detail, then browse our virtual store where you can find everything you may want beginning from a windshield to complete glass kits for popular classic and muscle cars in tinted and clear.

If you’re doing the restoration, no doubt you will need more than just the glass. All the related window parts of your vehicle are just as old and traveled the same miles. It doesn’t make any sense to install new glass and reuse old and worn out guides and stops that could cause the window to rattle and be out of position. On our virtual shelves we offer superior individual parts as well as glass mount kits. Many older classic and muscle cars had vent windows that is why we provide a comprehensive array of complete replacement assemblies that include the frame, molding, glass, weatherstripping, and handles. Broken handles are a common defect, so our website also has an extensive line of complete handle kits.

    Replacement Auto Glass Ensures You Will See Clearly
    Car owners replace the glass in their vehicle for one of two reasons: the first reason is that the existing glass has broken. On modern cars with "safety glass", the glass is either a laminated sandwich of two pieces of glass with a sheet of plastic in the center, or the glass is tempered. All windshields on modern cars use laminated glass so that the glass remains in one piece should one's head be unfortunate enough to contact it. Side and rear glass are usually tempered so that if it shatters, it breaks into many small pieces without sharp edges.
