Windshield Repairs in Upper Macungie Pennsylvania
Your car's windshield does not belong with the mysterious, under hood car parts. Although we do not give windshield much thought, they are incredibly important.
Many do know that windshields are comprised of numerous layers of glass. It features two layers of very special composite glass with a laminate in between the glass.

Damaged windshields are a safety risk, therefore they need to be repaired once there are any hints of damage. Due the tight installation technique as described above, the best course of action is to have the fix done on the original windshield, in place. If the damage is a small chip or crack, this is feasible. This is not feasible if the crack has lengthened, if the chip is in the driver's field of vision or the chip is bigger that a coin.
If detected early enough the bright side is that a tiny chip or little crack can likely be fixed by DIY methods. While this is an option, we still recommend that these simple fixes be dealt with by an auto glass pro.
Oftentimes, drivers will dismiss a little chip. This is a bad idea. Little chips can easily turn into larger complications that require a complete replacement.

What Tint % Can My Car Windshield Be?
I Live In Indiana And The Law Says That The Front And Rear Sides Have To Be 30% And The Back Window Has To Be 30% As Well.
It Also Says That We Can Have Tint On Our Windshield Only To The As1 Line But Doesn'T Specify A Vlt%, It Only States That It Can Be Non Reflective.
There is definitely a 30% requirement for rear window tint for Indianna. Some states allow as dark as you want on the rear window, but will require you have working mirrors on both sides of the car.
As far as the tint above the AS-1 line, there appears to be no specification, but it only makes sense to take the film from the same roll. Since all other windows call for the same 30%, I think you will find installers in Indianna only stock 30%, OR will charge a hefty premium to cut from a different roll to do such a small piece. But, like I said, if you wanted a different level for that one strip, it doesn't appear to be illegal.
If you buy a do-it-yourself kit, with pre-cut pieces, I think you will find they are all the same tint. Personally, I thing a different level tint across the top of the windshield from the other windows will look odd.
Shopping For A Used Car?
Ok, I Am 17 And I Will Be Getting A Used Car Soon. I Don'T Really Know Anything About Used Cars But I Really Want A Pt Cruiser. What Should I Be Looking For When Shopping Around For One? How Old?, Mileage? Ect. Ty In Advance
Take a notebook and write down the price and miles on every PT Cruiser you see. Go for the lowest miles and least rustyou can afford. Avoid turbocharged models (expensive to repair), and standard trans (they need expensive clutch replacements from time to time). Avoid cracked windshields, oil-covered engines, partial repainted fenders (indicates collision damage), oil dripping on the ground, bald tires, screeching brakes. Make sure all door and ignition locks work properly, and that windows go up and down smoothly. Check that the A/C blows cold. This is just the expensive stuff. Don't forget to check all the cheap stuff, too (lights, signals, horn, etc)
How Can I Replace A Car Window Cheaply?
Hi, I Have A 2002 Hyundai Accent Hatchback, With A Broken Side Window. It'S One Of The Windows In The Back Seat That Is Fixed In Place, It Doesn'T Open So All I Need To Do Is Glue A New One On.

I Heard I Can Get Custom Cut Polycarbonate Or Something Like That Cut To Size And Shape Cheap. The Dealership Is Quoting Me $150 And I Really Can'T Afford That Right Now As I Am A College Student. Please Point Me In The Right Direction, Thanks.
