The center layer of the windshields are is normally made from a vinyl plastic element. In simple words, it is a very tough plastic.

What Is The Cheapest I Could Get My Car Painted For Without Going To Maaco?
I Drive A White 98 4Runner. I Dont Want To Change The Color. There Is Just Spots Where The Paint Needs Touched Up. I Have Touch Up Paint But It Doesnt Look Good When It Dries. Where Is The Cheapest Place I Can Go? After Christmas Ill Have Around 3000 . Would That Be Enough?
different places charge diferent amounts. and there are few nationwide chains in that business, mostly independent shops and you would have to go by and ask them for an estimate.
maaco's $300 paint job only sucks because you cant prep a car cheaply, and without prep you cant do a quality paint job that will last.
maaco does offer better, more expensive, work as well. if you want to pay the price they will properly prep the car before painting it and it will still look good in 10 years, unlike the cheap paint job.
a HUGE part of the price of a good paint job is always prep. but there is a lot you can do to reduce the costs.
most of the prep is simple grunt work. remove unpainted bumpers and trim, tape and cover anything that doesnt come off easily and doesnt get painted (such as windows) and a whole lot of sanding of the areas that do get painted to get the paint to stay on.
you might just check around with your local community colleges. some of them have auto repair and auto body classes. you can enroll and learn some of this stuff yourself, or possibly have the students do the work for you at much cheaper prices.
i'm not sure i'd trust a bunch of students to do the actual painting, but with a good instructor a student who is near graduation should be able to do a very nice job painting as well.
Car Roof Replacement?
My Car Was Vandalized A Couple Weeks Ago, Someone Threw A Concrete Bird Bath Top Through The Back Window Damaging The Side Quarter Panel, Roof, Trim, Etc. The Insurance Company Thought It Would Be A Total Loss At First, There Was Structural Damage To The Roof, Cross Members Were Damaged, Etc, But Then Decided It Was Fixable. The Body Shop Has Welded A Salvaged Roof Onto The Car And Then Painted It And Replaced The Other Damaged Parts. I Have Never Heard Of A Roof Being Welded Onto Another Car, They Say It'S As Safe Or Safer Then The Original, How True Is This? Will The Roof Hold Up If We'D Ever Get Into An Accident Or Roll Over? My Kids Ride In This Car So It Makes Me Nervous. Any Advice Or Information Would Be Greatly Appreciated. Thanks For Taking The Time To Read This.
roofs can be replaced, just depends on how good they did it. the weld has to be very good, we replaced a roof on a jeep cherokee that flipped twice. also depends on where the damage is on the rear side quarter panel and how far down it is. but from the damage your car has it should be ok cause the other 3 corners of the roof are in tact so to say.
Can I Get Rid Of Stone Chips In My Car Windscreen?
I Have 2 Stone Chips In My Windscreen On My 55 Reg Golf, I Know I Can Get These Repaired For Free, Question Is There Are 100'S Of Tiny Ones, Nt Such As Chips But Little Marks That Makes The Windscreen Look Bitty... Can The Screen Be Polished Or Buffed Somehow? It Sometimes Gets Annoying While Driving As Its Not As Clear As Its Supposed To Be, Any Help/Info Would Be Great. Thanks
check your insurance cover, alot of them include a free replacement windscreen like once a year. If your covered for it wouldn't it be a shame if something accidently smashed your windscreen and you had to claim it on your insurance.
Why Doesn'T My Car Windows Work After Taking It To The Mechanic?
I Got A State Inspection And My Windows Were Working Fine No Problems When I Dropped The Car Off. After Inspecting The Car I Needed A New Signal Light Switch. After Fixing That They Told Me My Car Still Isn'T Passing Inspection Because I Need A Window Switch Whatever The Heck That Is. It'S Going To Cost $90. This Shop Has Been Screwing Me Around Since Tuesday. I'Ve Been To That Shop Everyday Because They Lied About When A Part Was Suppose To Be In. Again My Windows Were Working Fine, And Now They Work When They Want To. Electric Windows. Buick Century.
1) What Could Of Happen To My Windows?
2) Why Do Some Mechanics Make Problems Worst, And When You Confront Them On It They Look Like A Deer In Headlights? They Know They Broke Your Car, And Who Is Left With The Problem!
do you live near detroit? I can fix it for you. Sounds fishy. Switches are a dollar at the junk yard. Easy to get and fix yourself. Get your car out of there and go somewhere else. They dont deserve the work now anyway.
