Your car's windshield is unlike other, more mysterious car parts. The same as other aspects in life, when your windshield is working properly, we don't ever think of it. Yet, any time there is an issue, it ends up being an immediate concern.
Windshield glass is a kind of laminated glass. They are fabricated using a layering method. The outside layers are glass and the inner layer is a special laminate.
The laminate generally is made from a sort of vinyl plastic. This inner layer sticks to both outer layers. This serves to keep both layers together and provides a surface in the event of shattering for glass fragments to adhere to.
Original manufacturer's windshield placement is a highly robotic and computer-controlled process in the production line of automobile production. When carried out this way, the fit is very precise. Learn more about Fountain Hill window replacement near me from your local repair professional.

What Should I Know Before I Purchase Tints For My Car?
I Already Know Some Basic Stuff Like The California Rules For Tinting: As Dark As You Like For Rear And Rear Side Windows, But Only 70 Percent Vlt For The Front Side Windows And Windshield. Is There Like A Certain Kind Of Tint I Should Definitely Avoid, One That Is Super Cheap Or Bad? Btw I Have A 2 Door Honda Accord Coupe 1998 And I Am Planning To Get As Dark On The Rearside Tints As I Can. What Is A Reasonable Price For Tinting My Whole Car? And How Dark Is 70 Percent Vlt Btw... Do Hondas Already Come With A 70 Percent Factory Tint?
I will start from the bottom. If you car is already somewhat tinted I am not sure how getting new tinting put on will work. I think tinting from the manufacturer is in the glass or something and not a film.
I dont really know about what kind of tint but DONT go cheap. Shop around and ask lots of questions. Ask about warranties, etc. Good price(for a good job) would probably be around 200-300.
Don't get your front windows tinted very dark. It is against the law. I do have friends that have been ticketed for it and you have to take it off and then take your car back to show the state that it is no longer on the car. A real hassle.
Also dark tinting might be good for during the day but during the night it is horribly hard to see out of. I would not go below 30% on the back or your visibility could be a disaster.
But then again people in CA don't really follow these laws and they are rarely enforced.

Sorry about your car. I've never visited India but I suppose you have hardware stores just as we in the US. Why not call one and ask them. Matter of fact, call several to get the best price. I'm sure that the prices there will not be the same as here in the US as I am. Good luck!
Why Are Cars So Heavy?
Like For Instance The 2013 Mercedes C63 Amg, A C Class Benz Curb Weight Is About 3814 Pounds. I Mean How, Ok Lets Say The Engine Weighs Like 200-400 Pounds. That Means The Rest Of The Car Weighs At About 3500 Pounds Or So, Ok Gasoline Is Heavy So We Can Add Like 75-100 More Pounds For A Full Tank Of Gas, That Still Leaves Over 3000 Pounds, How Heavy Is The Car Frame Itself? And Do Most Of The Parts They Use For Cars Not Just The C63 Cast Iron/Aluminum? What About The Frame, Is It Usually A Cast Steel? And The Frame Parts Like The Doors, Roof, Trunk, Front Hood. Exhaust System. Even The 2013 Toyota Camry Seems Heavy At 3100 Pounds. If I Wanted To Build A Car I Would Make Almost Every Part Out Of Forged Steel/Carbon Fiber But I Guess That Would Cost Like Double The Price, I Would Still Do So, If Anything People Will Like The Idea Since The Car Will Be Somewhat More Reliable.
The engine in that car alone weighs about 700lbs. Gas is about 8.1lbs/gallon.
That car is unibody, it has no frame. But the unibody is a stamped steel. That part alone is likely about 800-1000lbs. Then add a 150-200lb transmission, a 400-500lb rear axle assembly, 150-200lbs in body panel components, plus the front seats in those cars are about 65-70lbs each...Add speakers, wiring, HVAC, radio, sunroof mechanisms, doors, glass...It adds up quick.
Oh, and your idea of building a car out of forged steel/carbon fiber...
Forged steel is only necessary for items that need the strength.
A single steel fender costs about $50 to make. A single carbon fiber fender would cost about $300 to make.
Once you replaced all the body panels of your 2013 Camry with carbon fiber, you would have dropped maybe 100lbs, and added $5000 to the cost. The fact is, the weight of the car is irrelevant, it doesn't matter. It doesn't make it any more reliable, and the carbon fiber body parts would actually be less safe.
I will give a breakdown of my car. I have trimmed 120lbs off the weight of my car. I have a 1998 Mustang Cobra. Curb weight was 3393lbs, I have it down to 3270.
Drivers front seat is 55lbs. Passenger is 40lbs.
1 wheel and tire is 52lbs (x4 that's 208lbs).
5 speed manual transmission is 110lbs.
Engine is, fully dressed, 480lbs.
wiring harness is 35lbs.
Full radio (incl. speakers) is about 20lbs.
Back seat is about 50lbs.
control arms are 20lbs each.
rear axle is 220lbs
Rear suspension is about 75lbs.
Trunk lid is 45lbs
Roof is 48lbs
Hood is 37lbs
Fenders are about 18lbs each
Spare tire is 60lbs
Brakes are about 100lbs.
Stock battery was 58lbs
Stock exhaust manifolds are 25lbs each
Stock dual exhaust cat back system was 45 lbs
Stock crossover pipe (cat converters) is over 40lbs.
Driveshaft is 33lbs
The dashboard assembly is about 80lbs
Add the rear quarter panels, front and rear bumpers, bumper supports, cooling system, coolant, oil, power steering system, ABS system, computers, sensors...It adds up QUICK.
Where Can I Get My Cars Windsheld Replace/Repaired?
I Have A 1990 Mazda 323 And Its Windsheld Has Two Big Cracks Along The Middle And Top. I Live In Reno Nv. Prices Maybe Too? Best Service? What Do You Recommed?.
I went online and found a place called Glass America. I live in the midwest, so I don't know if they are in your area also. They come to where your car is, and do a very thorough and professional job. I have used them twice, once for my son's Cadillac, and once for my Lincoln Town Car. I have zero deductible for my glass through Allstate, so I didn't pay a thing. If you need a different company, do a search online for auto glass replacement, and make sure that the replacement glass is OEM approved. A lot of glass companies use a cheaper,thinner glass to cut costs, and this may affect the safety of your car. Good luck!
