Windshield Repairs in Allen Township Pennsylvania
Your car's windshield is not like other, more mysterious car parts. Yet it seems to be plain in its use, however its usefulness can not be underrated.
Many do know that windshields are made up of multiple layers of glass. They are made up of 3 layers, two outer layers of composite glass and a middle laminate layer.
In many cases the inner layer is made of vinyl plastic. In simple terms, it is a very tough plastic. The vinyl plastic sheet has glue on both sides, sticking to the outer layers of glass. This is the grounds of how safety glass is constructed. It will defend against a windshield from shattering into hazardous glass shards.
Windshields installed in a manufacturing facility setting are done so with robots, in an extremely controlled manner. Computerized alignment and installation procedures make certain that both molding and windshield are accurately fitted.

Damaged windshields are a safety risk, therefore they need to be repaired immediately after there are any hints of damage. Whenever feasible, it is always recommended to have a repair done on the existing windshield, getting rid of the need to replace it. If the damage is a minor chip or crack, this is feasible. This is not possible if the crack has lengthened, if the chip is in the driver's field of view or the chip is larger that a coin.

What Should I Look For When Checking Out A Used Firebird?
Im Looking At A 1989 Firebird Trans Am. 83,000 Miles, T-Tops, 5 Spd, 8 Cyl 5.0L, Tune Port Injection With Pretty Much Power Everything. What Things Should I Be Weary Of When Checking It Out. I Would Guess The Tires, Brakes, Clutch, And Suspension Because They Would Probably See Alot Of Wear With This Car, But Thats Only A Guess. Anything Else That I Might Need To Know Would Be Very Helpful. Thanks
First off, I have to say I absolutely LOVE Firebirds (heck, just check my username). I've owned 3 of them ('86, '88, '90) and I would buy one again in a heartbeat if I could find a decent one.
With Firebirds, there are a few things you need to look out for...
T-Tops: Make sure the weatherstripping around the t-tops is in good shape. If its all dry and cracked, the tops might very well leak. And that won't be fun come a rainstorm.
Spoiler/Wing: If you have the wing on the Trans Am that sort of wraps around the rear hatch window, watch out that its not coming loose. Its not important to the car to keep functional, but its an aesthetic eyesore when its coming loose. The replacements for them run near $1000 for new pieces; not cheap (but not the most important part of the car).
Shocks/Suspension: If you're on a test drive in the car and you start feeling like you're sitting in a rocking chair instead of a bucket seat, you might need new shocks or struts. Firebirds are pretty low to the ground and give their shocks quite a workout.
Headlights: The pop-up headlights on Firebirds tend to go out after years of use. Sometimes you'll see those Firebirds (or other cars) that look like they're "winking" at you; means there's a dead headlight motor. Technically as long as it stays up, its not a driving hazard, but if they don't go up & down, it might not pass inspection (my last one failed for it & I live in NJ). A nice little trick is that you can also use the headlight motors from the similar year Sunbirds & Fieros since they had the same headlight motors. Not fun to install, but not the most difficult thing in the world.
Exhaust: As stated before, Firebirds ride pretty low to the ground. I had to replace the exhaust on two out of my three 'Birds (the other one I only had for two weeks, so I didn't get a chance to see it too far). The muffler tends to get beat up; I had a softball sized hole in my first 'Bird for about 3 months before I was finally ticketed for a "Loud Muffler."
Floorboards: The floorboards in Firebirds & Camaros tend to get a little rusty and weak over time and use. If you can get under the car (or a mirror under the car), check for rust around the vital areas so that you don't have pieces falling off as you drive.
Every car has its flaws, so you're obviously going to need to check out all the basics like you stated, but the things above are some of the more recurring problems I've seen with my Firebirds. I hope it turns out to be good and you end up with it. Treat it right and it'll last plenty; my '86 was bought @ 143,000 miles and lasted me to 168,000; my '90 was bought at 128,000 and lasted until 160,000+. By the way, none of them "crapped out" on me; the first two were involved in accidents and the third wouldn't pass emissions inspection (stupid 0.2 over on HC) so I had to sell it.
I Bought A Second Hand Car Yesterday And Today I Noticed A Chip On The Windscreen. What Should I Do?
Yesterday, I Spent The Most I'Ve Ever Spent On A Car, To Get Some Peace Of Mind, Instead Of My Usual Worries About Breaking Down, Or Frequet Repairs On An Ancient Car, Costing A Fortune. So I'Ve Been Getting Used To My New, Flash Motor, When Today I Noticed A Chip On The Windscreen. I'M Guessing It Must'Ve Been There Before - I'M Assuming I Would Notice If Something Flew At The Windscreen And Chipped It. I Trusted The Car Dealer...For Example, He Pointed Out The Small Bit Of Rust. If He Knew About It, Did He Have A Duty To Tell Me If He Had Noticed It? Is It Risky If I Keep Driving With A Chipped Windscreen? I Mean, Will It Shatter? Should I Ring The Car Dealer And Confront Him? Am I Making Too Much Fuss? I Can'T Spend Any More Money For The Time Being..I Can'T Get A Free Repair, As My Insurance Is Still 3Rd Party...Are Diy Kits Any Good? I Feel Disappointed, As I Finally Thought I'D Got A Car That Would Be Ok For A While And Not Have To Visit A Garage And Spend Money For A While...I'M Now Thinking I May Have To Get A New Windscreen...Any Advice? The Chip Is Not In My Direct Line Of Vision By The Way...I'Ve Heard Chips Are Risky In Cold Weather...Or Is That Just Autoglass Hype...One Last Thing...Know Any Good Glass Repairers In Manchester Uk? Cheers
Most of the insurance companies will repair windscreens free of charge ,just give your insurance a ring ,and having a chip repaired is not expensive .
Car Frame Repair For A Full Size Cadillac?
I Would Like To Know If It Is Worth The Effort To Repair Frame Damage To A 1992 Cadillac Brougham. The Rust Is Located To The Left And Right Of The Gas Tank.
that depends on the owner, if it is a car you are considering buying, it better be cheaper than dirt, those 90s cadillacs were not the best cars ever built so my advice, if you do not own one now, then don't buy this one, there are a fair number of questions on yahoo answers about the 90s Cadillacs with electrical problems, which goes along with what my Friend went through, we were driving near mount hood, and a snow storm popped up, we could not get the windows to roll up. then, after we drove like hell out of the storm, and it was nice, the windows worked fine
