Re: Adapting a windshield removal tool for a different purpo

This requires a two step solution. You start cutting with the wire and a pair of handle or vise grips or whatever. When you are two thirds through the sign will easily pull away from the wall and you go in with a long knife to cut the remainder while holding the sign in the other hand. You don't hav...

Re: Stuck wiper arms

Okay, I'm trying to picture this. You were saying to loosen the nut to the top of the threads? And then what do hit with the hammer? I am picturing it just pushing it further down if I pressed against the wiper arm. Pressing on the nut wouldn't help. Please elaborate. I did find a very nice puller t...

Re: Exposing hidden rust under car windshields

Although it is odd that the technician did'n't take it all apart for the new show, it doesn't mean that he does it this way most of the time. There are a few older models out there that have quite a high gap between the lower pinch weld and the cowel, as much as 3/4 inch. It is perfectly possible to...

Re: Direct glazing

This is a tough one. I'll say that it is unlikely you will see glass in frames. It was said in the discussion on the link that windshields are installed in urethane for safety. Of course a frame would be much safer so the actual reason they are set in adhesive is, since it is possible for it to be d...

Re: options/abreviations

Ok, you question my referring to you as "stuck up" and right away you go for an insult suggesting that I may not be "successful" which pretty much reinforces my take on your response. As far as this being why someone like me might not get a response, well I hadn't got a response before I referred to...

Re: options/abreviations

Well, that was the kind of answer I see with the auto glass forum. It comes off as a little stuck up. There are brand new terms that come out all the time. No one is born knowing them. No way everyone but my self just knows every abbreviation right off hand but you sound smarter to everyone reading ...

Re: 2002 land rover discovery quarter window seal ?

The only correct response to this post is to get a professional. RTV is not a permitted adhesive for auto glass installation. If you are not at least familiar with the basics you should not attempt to work on your own vehicle. It is possible that a QG not installed properly,with urethane, may come l...

Re: Windshield Glass Safety

Dude, you may not be aware of this but we are all professional auto glass installers and owners of auto glass companies. That is like telling a restaurant owner that he should cook the food and also to place it on a plate and not directly on the table so it will be cleaner. Also you tried to use wor...

Re: options/abreviations

So, are all of you employees and installers only? Are there no owner operators or even managers who have to price jobs?
Why bother to come on a forum if you won't contribute? Just silence.
