On my way home from work just now..

A little rock jumped up and cracked my windshield..

was about a inch big its been 45 mins its already a foot long...

Sigh.....

Recommendations? i think its a lost cause to try to fix it probably..

Never bought a windshield before, hoping they dont cost an arm and a leg..

Yea, that is beyond fixing.

Does your insurance cover glass?

that sucks.

i know i can get a PPG one from my glass supplier for $103 (including 2 tubes of urethane for the install).

and make sure you use 2 tubes when you install the new one. any less, and you run a good chance of having it leak.

That sucks, unfortunatly it will need to be replaced. Got lucky last windshield I had replaced was done under insurance, it cost me $20.00 for a tip and the shop waived the deductable.

I bought a new one for my Blazer last year because it had a slight crack in the top and the police station where I live refused to give my a test in my car even though the crack wasn't big enough to be illegal and it wasn't in my field of view. Anyways, mine cost me $180 for installation and everything.

good luck on finding a shop to install a used windshield that you're supplying.

My thoughts exactly... "We can't garauntee the soundness or quality of the windshield, so NO" is probably something along the lines of what you'll get from them.
