Guess it's time for new glasses. I thought it was a photo of a drone.

One several occasions, I have replaced windshields for various reasons. Through some manner of folly, a chip or crack would appear within a few months of replacement. I've learned to live with these various imperfections so long as A) it didn't make it unsafe to drive and B) I didn't get a citation. It's been about 15 years since I forked out dough for glass now. 👍

Im to the point now of making it a game with my vehicles.....how many rock chips can i get before one of them causes a crack. So far my record is 8 in my old 2001 Ram pickup. Number 9 finally cracked the windshield.
My current S10 blazer is up to 5 currently

Here in our area you can have cracks as long as it's not in the driver's line of sight.It won't get replaced until it gets real bad.

Check your area for windshield chip repair - around here it's about $20.00 per chip.Beats a $200.00 + for replacement

I thought about it but I think it might be too big. I'll check this next week.

Just went on Safelite's website because they're the one's who put the windshield in. They want $89 to repair it.
