Re: Suction cup imprint when windshield fogs up

I get suction cup marks all the time, Always removes well for me with Sprayway glass cleaner, or denatured alcohol.

Re: Best Brand windshield

Probably hard to find one period. Car is 32 years old, many times when I have a customer with a car that old I am simply not able to obtain it through my distributers anyway. Many have to obtain one at a Salvage yard, However from my experience all glass from the most expensive to the cheapest, chip...

Re: Urethane Cleaning

Sounds like you must have had the wrong people to install. There is just no excuse for such sloppiness in the glass business. Sorry to hear about your predicament, when I do get glue on something it is never the upholstery. I use a denatured alcohol to get glue off of any metal, urethane glue on uph...

Re: drill slid

The drill skipping across the glass is never a good thing, something that we just cant do, it causes a lot of damage that is simply not repairable. While you are waiting for work to come I would practice, practice, practice. Pass out those cards try and have a professional quality card and know that...

Re: 12V Moisture Evaporator

I would not be without one. It is perfect for getting moisture out of a break, you just have to be careful not to let it get to hot. I will start out in center of break depending on size but then I move it around the outside of break as well so as to evenly heat the break, 1 to 2 inches around the b...

Re: Windshield Replacement Training?

I sure didn't have years of training, but I had maybe 10 to 15 days of training from someone who is determined to do good work not the lick um and stick um that I see has been done everyday in my shop from my competitors. Yes I have had to learn some things the hard way, in fact I have been in the b...

Re: Three Windshields Later, Still Not Satisfied

Also customers will have to be willing to spend more money for an OE windshield, of which I find most people want to cut corners on their windshield expense. But most aftermarket windshields as I said, meet certain standards and should be good.

Re: Three Windshields Later, Still Not Satisfied

I installed an XYG windshield #DW02007 in a Dodge Pickup last week only to see as I pulled it out of the shop that in the center of the windscreen there was about a Quarter size circle that was a highly magnified distortion. It was small yet very distracting. Had to replace with another. The problem...

Re: Delta Heat exchanger

The heat exchanger is genius is my opinion, I will basically heat every break to make sure that there is no moisture in them, unless I am convinced that it just happened and by that I mean that I can still see the dust on the break where the rock hit. Usually early in the day my heat exchanger is pr...

Re: One technician setting tools

I use the AEGIS SOLO Windshield setting tool, could not operate without it. Took a few tries to get the feel of how things work but Wow! what a helper it has proven to be. Tool is a bit pricey but I use it everyday for couple years now. Highly recommend. :D
