    I agree with Ray..Especially if you have glass coverage do not wait. Peace of mind when you plan on putting in away. This way its nice and fresh for spring

    That sucks shit that this had to happen. I had the same thing 7 years ago and safelite actually fixed it with the epoxy and lasted but its showing again a little.

    Been helping out a good friend of mine doing a high end build on a 57 Olds Fiesta hardtop station wagon for another friend of ours.
    Owner bought a 2013 camaro SS rollover donor car for the drivetrain. Wagon has a 9 inch Ford/4 link rear, so I wound up with the 3.27 for mine.
    things are not what they appear to be.....
