Ways that truck glass varies from normal auto glass.
- To stay clear of rocks flying into the rig's windshields, truck drivers usually allow for ample space between their rig and the truck ahead of them, especially on rough roads.
- Semi truck drivers park in safe areas away from natural hazards or potential vandals.
- Your big rig windshield cracks or chips are fixed as soon as possible.
One key contrast, however, is commercial vehicle insurance. Whenever a truck driver sees a glass problem, they should get it repaired immediately. This will keep their truck in great status with the commercial insurance policy. Click for Windshield Replacement information.
The glass that goes into a truck is commonly a little more tough as compared with a car's glass. But, if you operate a commercial truck or van, you know that the risk you will face of damage as you log a lot of highway miles is a bit higher than the risk a driver of an economy car will face.

What Are The Best Tools To Have In Case Of Car Emergencies?
I Am All For Stocking My Truck Ready For Worst Case Scenarios. I Want To Feel Confident That I Can Make It From A To B Even If Something Happens. So My Truck Is Stocked With Jumper Cables, A Jack(Not The Stock One), My Own Tool Box With Assorted Goodies, Tire Iron, Flashlight, Tire Gauge, Rope, Even Some Ground Mats Just To Be Spoiled. I Keep A Toothbrush To Clean The Corrosion Off Of The Battery Terminals, A Can Of Super Lube, Extra Windshield Wiper, Extra Fluids(Power Steering, Etc.). Now I Am Planning On Getting A Portable Air Compressor That Plugs Into The Alternate Power Outlet Inside The Car, And Also A Jump Starter. Is There Anything Else That Is Kind Of Similar To The Jump Starter And Portable Air Compressor That Could Better Prepare Me For Emergencies?
I used to travel a lot for work and also go to the boonies a lot and had to ready for anything. So i didnt just depend on my spare tire . So I have carried tire plugs to repair a flat tire and have use them a few times and of couse i have a small air compressor too. One that is just a compressor, not with all fancy lights and junk , i dont like multi purpose tools. . I even carry a can of fix a flat incase my air compressor failed so could air up a flat tire with that if i need to. I also carry a cheap 12 volt hand held spot light with a long cord that plugs into the lighter outlet. It makes a 100 times more light than just a flashlight that might have dead batteries in it when you need it. A couple of little butane lighters incase i want to make a fire. My .22 cal semi auto rifle for protection and for plinking around.
And of course tools as you mentioned and a some extra hose clamps, i have had to make some mechanical repairs before while on the road. And of course some water to drink incase it is a hot day and you need to work on your truck , you want some water to drink. If i was going cross country , i filled my 5 gallon jug of water incase i or anyone else on the road lost all their radiator water.
I Need Directions On Replacing Wiper Blades On A 1993 Cadillac Fleetwood?
ELEMENT (REFILL) CARE & REPLACEMENT
For maximum effectiveness and longest element life, the windshield and wiper blades should be kept clean. Dirt, tree sap, road tar and so on will cause streaking, smearing and blade deterioration if left on the glass. It is advisable to wash the windshield carefully with a commercial glass cleaner at least once a month. Wipe off the rubber blades with the wet rag afterwards. Do not attempt to move wipers across the windshield by hand; damage to the motor and drive mechanism will result.
To inspect and/or replace the wiper blade elements, place the wiper switch in the LOW speed position and the ignition switch in the ACC position. When the wiper blades are approximately vertical on the windshield, turn the ignition switch to OFF.
Examine the wiper blade elements. If they cracked, broken or torn, they should be replaced immediately. Replacement intervals will vary with usage, although ozone deterioration usually limits element life to about one year. If the wiper pattern is smeared or streaked, or if the blade chatters across the glass, the elements should be replaced. It is easiest and most sensible to replace the elements in pairs.
If your vehicle is equipped with aftermarket blades, there are several different types of refills and your vehicle might have any kind. Aftermarket blades and arms rarely use the exact same type blade or refill as the original equipment. Here are some typical aftermarket wiper blades; not all may be available for your vehicle:
The Anco( type uses a release button that is pushed down to allow the refill to slide out of the yoke jaws. The new refill slides back into the frame and locks in place.
Some Trico( refills are removed by locating where the metal backing strip or the refill is wider. Insert a small screwdriver blade between the frame and metal backing strip. Press down to release the refill from the retaining tab.
Other types of Trico( refills have two metal tabs that are unlocked by squeezing them together. The rubber filler can then be withdrawn from the frame jaws. A new refill is installed by inserting the refill into the front frame jaws and sliding it rearward to engage the remaining frame jaws. There are usually four jaws; be certain when installing that the refill is engaged in all of them. At the end of its travel, the tabs will lock into place on the front jaws of the wiper blade frame.
Another type of refill is made from polycarbonate. The refill has a simple locking device at one end which flexes downward out of the groove into which the jaws of the holder fit, allowing easy release. By sliding the new refill through all the jaws and pushing through the slight resistance when it reaches the end of its travel, the refill will lock into position.
To replace the Tridon( refill, it is necessary to remove the wiper blade. This refill has a plastic backing strip with a notch about 1 in. (25mm) from the end. Hold the blade (frame) on a hard surface so that the frame is tightly bowed. Grip the tip of the backing strip and pull up while twisting counterclockwise. The backing strip will snap out of the retaining tab. Do this for the remaining tabs until the refill is free of the blade. The length of these refills is molded into the end and they should be replaced with identical types.
Regardless of the type of refill used, be sure to follow the part manufacturer's instructions closely. Make sure that all of the frame jaws are engaged as the refill is pushed into place and locked. If the metal blade holder and frame are allowed to touch the glass during wiper operation, the glass will be scratched.
Is There Any Kind Of Wax That Could Restore A Cars Paint Finish With Possible Damage To The Clear Coat?
My Truck Has A Dull Finish And A White Almost Milky Appearance To It. Its A 2001 So, It Should Have A Better Finish. The &Quot;Milky&Quot; Finish Is Slight But Prevents It From Getting It Where It Should Be. There Are Several Waxes On The Market That Clam To Restore A Dull Finish, But With There Being So Many I Would Like To Hear From Someone Who Has Experience With Some Of Them.
Mr. Tired has given the answer you should get.
There are some quicker options.
1. You can buy a sheet (1) of sand paper of 800 or 1000 grit.
it is a wet or dry sandpaper, with water sand lightly at first till you see the oxidation disappear in a area out of the way.
2. Then with any polish and a rag, put a little on a rag and polish a the area you just sanded and take a look.
3. Some times the discoloration is all the way through, and underneath the clear coat, and may be getting ready to flake.
4. That clear coat is a re-paint over clear after a repair probably, if it is it is probably the cheapest clear they sell.
5. Do steps one, 1000 grit sand paper is a little rougher then cardboard and will not damage the paint, its used instead of "compound" polish to color sand new paint, before buffing and finishing.
If you lightly sand a bad area before you compound It the compound will cut quicker, and reduce your time by half or better. If you compound in one spot it will heat up and burn the paint....
3-m Professional compound is the best, $16.00 a quart. a can of red Auto 7 polishing compound is very good for hand rubbing and cost $2, it is 800 grit polish also.
For up front investigation of the problem go with Auto 7.
You should have a buffer, anyway get one for $39 bucks at wall mart I have several, there good but a little slow for us.
We use Mikita's there over $ 250 these days.
A bufferer and some 3M Polishing Compound is the way to go for you, a Quart will last you a long time, and when you try it that is what to buff out the car to remove road film before we wax or polish cars....its quick and professional.
THEN BIG GUY......
You can charge folks to Polish out their cars, locally they are charging $ 70 buck average to $150 for compound and polish jobs....
With the Craftsmen or Wall Mart polisher you won't get in much trouble....the faster commercial buffers will eat Pinstripe, Antennas, and burn corners down to metal so quick you will never no it. Then if the cord gets wrapped abound the shaft of the buffer it could break you fingers, arm, bust windshields, knock off mirror's.
Thats the deal........
If you get in a bad bad paint spot use the Auto 7 with a buffer, that will be a quick cure.....
If you were around Houston you could use our stuff, no problem there are guys who will do the same in your area I'm sure.....car guys are car guys that is how i learned some one showed me everything over years.
Good luck, Guy...........every thing will come out fine,
